The Roman civil designer Vitruvius blogged about four sorts of "pozzolana"-- black, grey, red, and also white. The Romans comprehended the water resistant qualities of this new building material, utilizing it to create their port at Cosa.

Even more remarkable is the Roman Pantheon, which was made entirely out of concrete, without the enhancing assistance of structural steel. Its impressive 142-foot-high dome still stands today. It is a huge concrete structure and has actually weathered earthquakes and other natural catastrophes throughout its 2,000 years.
