Timber Roman Bridge Low-poly 3D model
About this model
A worn river-crossing timber bridge, of the type the Roman empire would likely have constructed to temporarily allow their legions movement across water. While a simple model with even simpler texturing, this could provide a quick and believable way for you to add a timber bridge to a scene. Comes fully optimised and mapped with basic textures.
Temporary bridges are those that must usually be constructed in haste by military engineers, from available materials, frequently under fire. The earliest types historically were pontoon bridges—i.e., floating bridges that rest on stationary boats. Pontoon bridges were constructed in ancient times by Persians, Greeks, Romans, and Mongols, the most famous being Xerxes’ 2-mile (3-kilometre) span over the Hellespont (Dardanelles). The Romans, however, frequently built more durable military bridges, notably Julius Caesar’s timber crossing of the Rhine River and Trajan’s timber-arch span of the Danube.
