Asked in Roman Empire
Why were roads necessary to roman republic?
Roads were necessary to the Roman republic for the same reasons that roads are necessary for us -- to get people and things from here to there. When we talk about the famous Roman roads, we are talking about the paved roads, rather than the earlier unpaved roads. The first paved road was the Appian way, which was built in 312 BC to speed up the movement of Roman troops to the front of the Second Samnite War (326-304 BC). The Roman Republic needed paved roads for military purposes. This need started when they expanded into Italy through wars with various Italian peoples. The paved roads also made the transport of supplies to the Roman military bases quicker and easier.
