The Romans were great engineers.

But,

I thought we knew how they made cement decades ago.

They mixed in ash, unlike our modern Portland cement.

But, they report this news is new to them.

Amazing.

  1. The Romans were indeed such great engineers that they, along with a couple of horses’ asses, determined the size of the Space Shuttle’s solid rocket boosters (SRBs).

    • Jeff,

      That is brilliant. I never would have thought it was the Roman asses, I would have thought it was the American asses that determined the sizing of the SRB’s.
