    How do not know the Romans came an stole all the Egyptians and made then do all the hard labor for them? The Egyptians built some pretty big things, so why not steal the brains of the operations and the labor force?🤔

    Okay, I know I went to a public high school, but I also went to a Catholic K-8 school. When you say that "Constantinople's buildings conceal a secret that laid undiscovered for 'thousands of years', something so important, it had to be hidden deep underground", and you're the History Channel, how many thousands of years? Like, the city was founded in around 330 A.D., so it's not even 2 thousand years old, much less thousands of years old. Is this how we're learning history today, by hyper exaggeration?

    If they think they've figured out how Caesar's engineers built that bridge in ten days, let's see someone reproduce the feat using period tools.

    Good job revealing when the Constantinople cistern was rediscovered . . . not.

    The Romans may have Re-discovered concrete, but they weren't the very first inventors of it. The Egyptians and Hindus knew of it and used it extensively. It is evident in Peru, Cusco, Ollyantambo and Mexico.

    Barbegal could be used for small scale power generation. It could supply a small town or housing complex.

    Can't make a road last 3 yrs now…

    #1 is flawed, #1 should be arches. The Romans were the first to make it popular. Without arches there would've been no aqueducts at all.

    I thought about the roaman empire every time I listen to our government and their bs they ate both handing out.
