We take roads for granted. Their importance only appears to us when they are missing, whether they are actually missing to reach a place (an exotic region, a mountain, a monument…), which is then considered as out of reach; or whether they are momentarily cut off (by a natural disaster, a strike, protest roadblocks).
And yet there was a time when these thoroughfares didn’t exist.
This text aims at showing their genesis.
