Roman Roads

Post  Ophirkes on Wed Apr 15, 2015 4:17 pm

Romans…who were they? We all know that once, at some point, there were such people known as the Romans and that they built the first “poles”, used cement for the first time, had an insanely big empire, built huge stadiums, and had their own language. The Romans got from place to place very easily and had a lot of messengers to get things from one place to another. If they were such a great empire, how did they get overthrown, out of power, beaten? And why? Well there is a very simple answer, their roads, that’s why.

The Romans built so many roads that they had a road surrounding the empire in almost every direction; it’s insane! So they were beaten, right? Since they had a road from every direction, every time a group of people came, all of the guards would go to that place to prevent them from entering. Like this, there were entrances, free ones that led straight to the empire. And so, the people did.

The Romans had many roads and all of these roads would take you straight to Rome. The advantage of this was that it would be easier for them to trade. The bad part about these roads was that now it would be easier for people to invade Rome.

Good work!
The road were considered a great roman contribution since it lead people to Rome from many places, but it turned out to be bad for the empire once people've realized that anyone now could easily come to Rome by using these roads.
