I am working on a fireplace drawing.  And I was wondering, for the floor of the fireplace I was thinking of using a more solid stone in there.  So I was wondering if Santharia had any form of concrete or something, like what sidewalks are made of, that I could use.  Or would I be better off using a large stone slab or something?

We had this discussion a while back - I'll see if I can find it.  Briefly:

The Romans had concrete; technically it's not difficult to make
We probably have concrete - it's called something different, the gnomes 'invented' it and it's used in small applications more as mortar would be.   Public sidewalks aren't really known but walkways would be paving stone, cobble stone, wooden planks, pounded dirt, etc.  For your fireplace, try large slabs of any stone which fractures well or can be cut and polished flat, then bed it down in mortar!
