118,507. From sanitation to education to roads, the Roman empire certainly left its mark on the modern world but researchers have now found it also left an imprint further afield – deep inside the Greenland ice sheet.
During the height of the Roman and Greek civilisations, lead emissions from the mining and smelting of lead-silver ores in Europe drifted more than 2,800 miles (4,600 km) and settled in Greenland.
Year after year, snow added layers to the ice sheet and lead emissions were captured along with dust and other airborne particles.
Over the years they became part of the ice-core record which scientists use today to get new insight into Europe between 1100 BC and AD 800.
