Transcript

  • 1. A+ Rome
  • 2. Mount Vesuvius
  • 3. An Italian archeologist in the late 1800s noticed that the bones they recovered from Pompeii were all from “hollow” areas. He decided to fill these hollows with plaster and when they chipped them out, they found they were the molds of the actual bodies of the people who had died. The above photo is a mold of a dog that had been tied up prior to the eruption
  • 4. Aqueducts <ul><li>Romans excelled in engineering </li></ul><ul><li>The aqueducts had a steady incline from their source to Rome </li></ul><ul><li>Aqueducts brought 260 million gallons of water a day to Rome from the hills </li></ul><ul><li>Some came from a distance of 30 miles </li></ul><ul><li>Many carried more than one “pipe of water” </li></ul><ul><li>The pipes were made of clay except when they reached the city of Rome </li></ul>
  • 5. Water could be “slightly diverted but could not be stopped once it began its journey on the aqueduct---that is why there were so many fountains and bathes in Rome---the water had to go somewhere! Although the “arches” of the aqueducts are the most famous, most of each aqueduct was actually tunneling through the ground.
  • 6. Natchez Trace Parkway Bridge (Still using arches!)
  • 7. The Communal Toilets <ul><li>Fun Fact: They had a sponge on a stick that was used to “wipe” and then it went back in a pail of water for the next person to use! </li></ul>
  • 8. Photos from flickr
