History - Ancient Rome:Architecture & Engineering Exploits


Throughout their empire the Romans have left us countless examples of their skills in architecture, engineering and town planning.

What will we cover?

We shall investigate:
? Building techniques adopted from the Greek world.
? The building materials and techniques used by the Romans, in particular their development and use of concrete and of all forms of the arch.
? The design and building methods of some of the key buildings in Rome, such as the Pantheon and the Colosseum.
? Their skills in water engineering – in particular their construction and use of the aqueduct throughout the empire.
? The remains and evidence from archaeological sites in Rome and across the empire will provide the basis of the lecture.
