Each bridge article provides a comprehensive commentary on the history of the structure alongside key statistics and details of construction.Feature panels provide details of closely-related structures, the stories of bridge engineers and architects, building techniques, and how bridges have influenced and reflected almost every aspect of our history and culture. "Bridges of the World" also includes a special introduction dedicated to the history of bridges and bridge building. Examples of structures in "Bridges of the World" include unique bridges such as the medieval Postbridge clapper bridge in Devon; the remarkable Roman masonry of the Pont du Gard aqueduct; the majesty of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, the ingenious 'eye-lid' design of the Gateshead Millennium Bridge; the reconstructed Stari Most, a symbol of peace and co-operation; and the awe-inspiring Millau Viaduct, a bridge that quite literally sits in the clouds.
