The history of the road dates back to the distant past. The oldest known asphalt road in the world was built in Egypt. Cobbled streets can also be seen in the city of Ur in the Middle East. Modern civilization has allowed us to pave the way much more easily and efficiently. The turning point was the 20th century, when Harry Barber of the Barber-Greene Company developed the first mechanical asphalt paver in the United States in 1931. This led to the development of modern road vehicles. In today's video, you can evaluate what humanity has achieved so far in the field of road.
