I read Lancaster's book to learn more about how the Romans made their mortar and concrete, and I came away with much fascinating information about Rome, and a better appreciation of their accomplishments. First comment: Lancaster's time frame is at least five centuries, and as she discusses the changes in the quality of mortar over time, the scope of the Roman period becomes very apparent.

Five centuries? Europeans have been in the Western Hemisphere for not much longer than that. Second comment: micro research has implications for the larger picture.

A truism, I suppose. But I didn't appreciate how looking at the sand that makes up the concrete the Romans poured at Caesaera Maritima in what's now Israel, can say so much about an economy and a world view. About 52, tons of pozzolana or volcanic sand from around Rome was shipped to the site of harbour installations there, probably as ballast in ships that had carried grain from the Middle East to Rome. The global economy goes back a long way!

Third comment: Lancaster has taken all this very detailed research and come up with some very ideas analysis about how innovation is effected.
