Russian term or phrase:накладывается культура покоренных народов
При этом на культуру Рима накладывается национальная культура покоренных народов, и в их единении рождается феномен новой, невиданной ранее культуры
The national cultures of the people conquered by Rome were overlaid onto Rome's own culture, and, through this joining, the phenomenon of a new, previously unknown [non-existent] culture was born. [Or, all present tense, if you prefer.]
I realize you closed the question, but I'd like to say that I think "merge" is broader than the specific sense of "накладываться". But, the normal English usage is "A is overlaid onto B" rather than "B is overlaid by A". Therefore, I'd suggest (next msg).
