Concrete-Past, Present and Future

Anyone delving into the past history of concrete cannot fail to be impressed by the astonishing amount of knowledge possessed by ancient engineers. It would seem that the only difference between them and their modern counterparts is that they did not have slide rules and computers. They certainly had a great deal of courage, ingenuity and engineering ability, and produced some astounding structures. J.E.C. Farebrother
