Leonardo da Vinci’s arch bridge 

Come to see an example of Leonardo da Vinci‘s self-supporting arch bridge. No nails, screws, rope, glues, notches, or other fasteners are holding the bridge in place… just friction and gravity. The bridge was designed between 1485 and 1490, to be built rapidly with  local trees, that could be easily slid into place, lashed together, and then crossed quickly, making troop movement over rivers speedy, creating a surprise factor that was critical to success in battles.
