Product description

Review

'...brings together a vast quantity of information in a lively and highly readable form, with extensive notes and illustrations and a comprehensive bibliography. The index is particularly well done. Anyone seriously interested in the working of Roman aqueducts (and even the casually curious) will be using this valuable survey again and again.'--Harry B. Evans, American Journal of Archaeology

Synopsis

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.
