What did the Romans do for us?

They invented the modern world. Modern cities, modern warfare, modern living all first came together in ancient Rome. The Romans were the first superpower, controlling around a quarter of the world’s population. This film looks at how they used technology to hold together their empire. We see the ingenious pilum, a spear cleverly designed so that the enemy couldn’t throw it back; the scorpion, a bolt-firing weapon of war; and the rock-hurling ballista, the fore-runner of modern artillery.

We learn how they built their roads, the arteries of the empire that, put end to end, would stretch twice around the world. Roman cities, with their grid pattern, paved the way for the cities of today. They had hot baths, central heating, flushing toilets and double-glazing. They built apartment blocks 8 stories high, and to entertain their citizens built stunning buildings like the Pantheon and Colosseum (or Coliseum). But holding everything together at the heart of the Empire, was water. No city can survive without a supply of drinking water. Great aqueducts carried water into Rome from springs 11 miles away. When the planners of New York were building their water system, they travelled to Italy to copy the Romans. .

Americans had no cultural distinction of their own, so they borrowed from ancient cultures, that's why there is so much symbolism in DC.

What if we are yet to invent or realise that water could do whatever petrol, diesel, gas and coal could do for us but we just haven't thought to try or even think of such… I mean except the part where we use water in dams for electricity but rather engines ,machines of all type could do so but filled with water only .. But the "only masterpiece " theory we have now allows us no room to think or commit on a very stupid and unbelievable and unrealistic ideas…

It is rather enjoyable, to put it lightly. Having smooth, vibrant legs again… with stuff you can obtain in the supermarket, including castor essential oil lol. You will find another few crucial ingredients, I forget, try googlng Mabel Ridenbel's website to find the entire thing.

I remember watching this episode a decade ago when I was in middle school. Truly fascinating even though I'm a bit hesitant on some points in the narration (because of what I've learned now as a man in his mid-twenties). I still wonder though if they shared the same sponge or brought their own.

39:44 It physically hurts to have them talk about RIVETED mail, to then show how easily arrows penetrate BUTTED mail, instead of the real thing. Get yourself a thick gambeson and a proper riveted chainmail on top, and there's no way arrows are going to penetrate.

The Romans took everything they know from the Ancient Egyptians. Funny, they knew nothing. The architect is the epitome of the Egyptians Pillars and make up.

I detect a certain poofy, la-di-da undertone to the narration that seems quite dubious.

Why can't American narrators sound…just normal? It is the CONTENT that makes it interesting or not, not the tone of voice. And, apart from that, only 30 years ago, Americans in general did not have such horrid drawl.

i wonder why it seemed more "modern" in ancient Rome than lets say 150 years ago or so…. like the pioneers from 200 years ago or so were more primitive than a civilization from 2000 years ago….i never got that….its like we regressed before we started to progress again…how does that happen??

Nope…. floor heating isnt a thing of the 20th century. Noble man of the medieval Britian and France (atleast from them i know it) also has floor heating in a similar way.
