The Roman Builders

The Romans built roads, baths, buildings and aqueducts. The aqueducts brought water from streams 30 miles away! They had to build roads because they conquered all of Italy and they needed to get from place to place.

They invented concrete to use for the roads and buildings. They made the concrete by mixing volcanic ash, water and lime.

There are ruins of what the Romans built in Italy and other places.
