Ancient Rome

Here are some kinds of technology:The Aqueducts- The word aqueduct comes from the latin word aqua, which means water and the Latin word for channel, ductus. Each Roman town had at least one. Rome had at least ten because it was a larger town. Sewers- Lines came from latrines and publics baths to River Tiber. They built these only in Rome because it was and still is a larger town. Sewage collectors would collect the waste from houses and sell them to farmers to use as fertilizer.Heating-Rich Romans hired slaves to make warm fires that would travel through the house by going through the walls of the house. Slaves made the fires in basements. Not only in houses, but in public baths too.
