" For a long time ago, Rome had been the center of civilization, but after the goths and vandals had attacked her."

For starters I would say: "for a long time" and leave the "ago" out.
Also "attacked" instead of "had attacked".
To call Rome a "she" sounds very poetic,while the text appears
just a historical relay.
