Going back as far as the Roman times, in ancient Rome Man has started using stone to cover up drain
  • The layman term for drain cover ( storm drain grating ) is manhole cover. Say "manhole cover" and images of spies/heros using the underground sewage system popping out of manhole cover in Hollywood films appear.
    Historically since that time Man invented the sewage system since the Roman Times to drain water and urban waste away for sanitation purposes, manhole covers (drain covers or grates as we would prefer to call them) have already been invented out of the basic need in order to avoid people from falling into underground sewage and to prevent large objects from entering the drains which cause choking which eventually may lead to flooding.
    Fast forward to the modern day, the sewage system is still utilised under all cities worldwide. As opposed to crude stone manhole covers the Romans use in the ancient days, today we have special steel reinforced stone gratings that provide the thousand year old function of covering the inlets of our sewage system.
