Roman Architecture

The Romans are the reason that we have arches and stadiums. The amphitheatres today are copied by the Roman who built the Colosseum. Much like we build today with concrete, they made the pantheon using concrete to support the weight of the dome. When concrete was prepared it had a thick consistency, which is why they laid it instead of pouring it like modern concrete. Concret was common because it was cheaper then solid stone.

-They used concrete for filler material, but stopeed when they realized it could support great weight-The credit for buildings was given to who ever paid for the building, rather then the architects who came up with the ideas -Most Architects were not known, unless they were hired directly by the emperor.
