Welcome to The Rise of The Roman Empire podcast series by Cambridge For Kids. This fifth episode looks at Architecture and Engineering. The Romans developed fascinating architecture and were outstanding engineers. While being strongly influenced by Greek and Etruscan designs, they were the finest builders of roads, bridges, and aqueducts in the ancient world. More than 50,000 miles of road connected Rome with the frontiers of the Roman Empire.
