------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Roads

My state is about how the Incas made roads an how they used them. Explain: The Incas built large road systems that went through all of Inca Territory. They built bridges to get across rivers and lakes. The main purpose for roads was for troops, goods and messengers. Chaskis would run through on the roads to deliver messages. Only strong young men could do it. Messages were spread 250 miles per day. Support:"The roads were usually paved with stone.

Architecture"

State: This paragraph is about how they made buildings and what they used. Explain:3 types of stone are Yucay Limestone, Green Sacs Human Diorite Porphyry and Black Andesite. Each of those stone weighs many tons. They would pound the clay instead of spreading it. For walls there was no hole through the stones. Even a blade of a knife could get through it. Roofs were made out of canes and wood. Support: “The stone was of three types: Yucay limestone, green Sacsayhuaman diorite porphyry, and black andesite.”
