About Europa 2020– Roman Carriage C

In ancient Roman times the territory of present-day Slovenia became a junction and crossroads of several busy and highly important routes – the Roman roads connecting western and coastal areas with the interior and providing a rapid connection to neighbouring territories in the north, east and south. The Roman state created a courier service called the cursus publicus for the transport of official communications. Fast carriages and wagons were used to transport a wide variety of official communications on wax tablets or papyrus scrolls (paper was not known), as well as money, important objects, packages, and so on. Relay stations (positae stationes) stood along the roads, usually one day's journey apart.
