Roman The Universal Empire - From Foot Shod To Missile Pod
An Integrated, Interdisciplinary, Thematic Study of the Links to the Ancient World---Increasing Global Communication Through Transportation. Roman traders who journeyed to the Far East 2,000 years ago measured distance not in miles but in how far they traveled by camel in an hour. As they approached their destination, they neared the edge of their known world. How the world has changed since then! Today, we travel far into space. We also look back, learning about our past. Our world view expands as we explore distant horizons and the evidence of the past worlds.
