Rome, Italy has the ancient structure called the Colosseum.

The architecture is made of columns that have arches between them. An arch is made from wedge shaped stones that fit between the columns. The top stone is called the keystone and holds it all together. Look at the space inside the arch.

Another structure that is made from arches
is the Roman Aquaduct.

Can you think of any other structures that
use the arch?
