Roman road

Ancient Roman road of Tall Aqibrin

Roman roads – the construction of an extensive system of aqueducts and roads, as well as large monuments, palaces, and public facilities.
Roman roads (in Latin, viae – singular via) were vital to the maintenance and development of the Roman state, and were built from about 500 BC through the expansion and consolidation of the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire. They provided efficient means for the overland movement of armies, officials and civilians, and the inland carriage of official communications and trade goods. Roman roads were of several kinds, ranging from small local roads to broad, long-distance highways built to connect cities, major towns and military bases.
