The phrase “All roads lead to Rome” seems to channel a deeper meaning if we further analyze it. Imagine some of the common items or environmental structures that are found in many societies today. Roadways? Concrete? Sewer Systems? Today’s Date? The Romans set the foundation for all of these structures, ideas, and much more.
With all roads leading somewhere, the Romans expanded their empire and connected these paths throughout different parts of Britain, Europe, Africa, etc. This is why many Roman structures are scattered among various regions around Italy.
It seems as if each day holds a new intriguing find that can be traced back to Ancient Rome and yet, there is much more to discover about the Romans. For 2016, let’s look at some of the discoveries made in connection to the Romans!
