Roman and Greek Contributions.

Roman development of aqueducts
The development of aqueducts was created by the Romans. The Romans used these elevated water systems to pump water for themselves. Remember that this was all manual work. Today aqueducts are called plumbing systems. They changed dramatically by being electronic instead of manually.
The Greeks where responsible for the advent of sports. They had the first olympics created after Zeus. They used the sports to keep the body in shape. We use sports today to keep the body in shape and for fun. We still have the olympics. Sports have come a long way. We have continued to add more sports.
Roman system of laws
The Romans created the first systems of laws. They used the laws so everybody would be respectful and could follow a common rule. They used the twelve tablets so that everybody would be able to see the laws. We still have laws today. Some of which are based on the Roman laws. An example is your house rules.
