The word street has its origins in the Latin strata (meaning "paved road" - abbreviation from via strata ); it is thus related to stratum and stratification. The first recorded use of word stratæ referring to the road has been made by the Eutropius. Ancient Greek stratos means army: Greeks originally built roads to move their armies. Old English applied the word to Roman roads in Britain such as Ermine Street, Watling Street, etc. Later it acquired a dialectical meaning of "straggling village", which were often laid out on the verges of Roman roads and these settlements often became named Stretton. In the Middle Ages, a road was a way people travelled, with street applied specifically to paved ways.
