Rome: Concrete

Origin: 150 B.C.

Roman Concrete, also called opus caementicium. It was a material used in construction during the late Roman Republic until the Roman Empire. Roman concrete was made by heating limestone into quicklime, then added water and volcanic ash. Rome had no shortage of volcanic ash to use because since volcanoes lay to north and south of Rome the ash would always be available. So without having concrete, people wouldn't be living in houses and would be poor.


Concrete today is very important because it is a strong element, solidifies and harden quickly. According to concrete is used to make pavements, pipe, architectural structures, foundations, motorways/roads, bridges/overpasses, parking structures, brick/block walls and footings for gates, fences and poles.

Government and Politics

Greece: Democracy


Origin: 507 B.C

In 707 B.C. the Athenian leader Cleisthenes introduced a system of political reforms that he called demokratia, or “rule by the people.” Citizens voted directly. Participation was not open to all residents. To vote one had to be an adult, male citizen, neither a resident alien or a slave.


Democracy is still used today and there are still countries that are using democracy. For example, Pakistan, United States, India, Mexico, Germany, etc. This form of government doesn't really work well today because there are 7 billion and counting, people on Earth today! So it would be a very long time to make any decisions or vote.
