Concrete comes from the Latin word “concretus” and means hard and compact. The material was already in use a couple of thousand years ago and many Roman structures like the dome of the Pantheon in Rome remain to the current day.
Today cement is readily available all over the globe making concrete the most commonly used man-made material.
