Here in the 21st  century, concrete is everywhere. Modern civilization depends on it. Yet,  concrete is not some recent phenomenon. In fact, concrete was being used  before even 0 A.D. Romans used the material extensively, building such  marvels as the Colosseum and the Pantheon. Any trip to Rome today would be  much less exciting without Roman concrete's impressive ability to survive  the wear and tear of the centuries. What properties allow concrete to  withstand the test of time? And how do these properties hold up in comparison  to modern concrete? Join us as we explore concrete throughout the ages.
