“Art must take reality by surprise” -Francoise Sagan
The ancient Romans were known for their impressive military prowess and engineering skills, which were reflected in the construction of their forts and fortresses. Roman forts were strategically built to protect the empire from invading forces and to control territories.
Roman forts were typically constructed using stone and brick and were designed to withstand attacks from both land and sea. They were usually square or rectangular in shape and were surrounded by walls, towers, and gates, with the main gate being heavily guarded. The interior of the forts contained barracks, storehouses, and stables for the soldiers, as well as administrative buildings, workshops, and bathhouses.
In addition to their military function, Roman forts also served as administrative centers and were often located near major roads and trade routes, allowing them to maintain control over commerce and trade. The presence of a Roman fort also brought a sense of security and order to the surrounding area, and many forts became thriving communities, with markets, temples, and even theaters being built within their walls.
Wise words are priceless. They are one of the greatest form of passing knowledge and history of mankind.
