Technology in the Ancient World: Ancient Rome
From building techniques and making textiles to creating accurate calendars and understanding the human body. Six books that show how each civilisation gradually developed their knowledge and applied it, making advances that would dramatically and permanently change how people lived.
Ancient Rome is famous for its achievements in building amazing aqueducts, bridges and arenas. But did you know that the Romans didn't invent all the techniques they used. Some ideas were improvements on technologies that already existed, such as those of the Ancient Greeks. But the Romans were masters of applying technology from around the world, and some of their technology is still relevant today, from the roads you travel on to the home you live in, to the coins in your pocket. This book looks at some of the most important Roman technologies and explores why they occurred at that time.
