Full description for Roman Aqueducts and Water Supply
How did a Roman waterworks work? How were the aqueducts planned and built? What happened to the water before it arrived in the aqueduct and after it left, in catchment, urban distribution and drainage? What were the hydraulics and drainage involved? In a study ranging through the Roman aqueducts of France, Germany, Spain, North Africa, Turkey and Israel, Trevor Hodge introduces us to these often neglected aspects of what the Romans themselves regarded as one of the greatest glories of their civilisation.
