Estimated period of occurence (100 - 500)

The Architecture of Ancient Rome adopted the external Greek architecture around 12th century B.C. for their own purposes, creating a new architectural style. The Roman use of the arch and their improvements in the use of concrete and bricks facilitated the building of the many aqueducts throughout the empire. The same idea produced numerous bridges. The dome permitted construction of vaulted ceilings and provided large covered public space such as the public baths and basilicas.
