                                ROMAN MERCHANTMAN

Dating from before the time of Christ and remaining in use for several centuries after, the merchant ships of the Roman Empire represented an important stage in the evolution of the cargo ship. 

Roman cargo ships demonstrated great uniformity in their design. With the high level of maritime commerce within the Empire, innovations and improvements were quickly shared and disseminated within the ship industry. Some of these vessels were very large, up to 180 feet long, like the ones used for carrying grain from the fertile Nile valley to Rome.
