The study of roads will be our vehicle through which to explore the history of the world.

Through this Master Class we will look at the general lines of development in the history of road building and tie this in with the nature of the communities that constructed and used the roads built by the road industry before us. Our journey will be a mix of archeology, anthropology, and technology, sprinkled with a bit of trivia and humour as we discover we have more in common with our predecessors than our modern practices and technologies may currently reveal.

Road professionals, engineers, and builders, as well as academia, students of history, and the curious (and indeed layman!) will find this Master Class to be a relaxing survey that will supplement and broaden the road specialist’s knowledge on the mobility of humankind.
