About romanconcrete.com

This site is dedicated to sharing information and resources on ancient construction technology, especially Roman construction materials, tools, and methods. The goal is to understand and better appreciate the advances mankind made thousands of years ago in developing sophisticated, beautiful and practical structures that, in some cases, still stand today. David Moore provided the inspiration for this site. He wrote the book The Roman Pantheon: The Triumph of Concrete after retiring as a construction engineer.
