Do you know what a Milestone was in ancient times?
Milestones were originally stone obelisks – made from granite, marble, or whatever local stone was available – and later concrete posts. They were widely used by Roman Empire road builders and were an important part of any Roman road network, in which when the distance travelled per day was only a few miles in some cases.
So, do you have a milestone to celebrate with your child today? Break out the camera! Or at least, sit down and talk it over with them.
