Trampled Underfoot Podcast – 168 – The Quest For Fire

In this episode of Trampled Underfoot Podcast, Mark Lindsay presents a review of a video titled The 1751 Machine That Made Everything. This is the true account of the development of the metal lathe that made the industrial revolution possible. The hosts explore the history of the machine tool that made the invention of machines and other machine tools possible.

Eloy Escagedo then introduces a discussion of the Roman aqueducts and roads that spread all over Europe, and made the Roman Empire what it was. What caused these technological advances to fall into disuse? Why were so many of them abandoned?

Ancient technologies, ancient civilizations, antique tools, archaeology, and our process of creating the electricity that drives our comfortable modern lives are discussed and commented on in the way that only the Trampled crew can. Relax and enjoy!
