There is an old expression, "All
roads lead to Rome." In ancient Rome, Rome was the heart of the
empire. Each time a new city was conquered, a road was built from
that city back to Rome.
Roads were built in straight lines.
Many had gutters. Along the side of road, the Romans built road
signs called milestones. Milestones did not give any information
about other towns in the area. Milestones told how far it was
back to Rome.
