Watering the Romans

Masada Project, Mrs. Cannon, P. 7, Henry Womack

The Roman aqueducts, were systems by which fresh water was delivered to Ancient Rome. They were a marvel of engineering even to this day, let alone in ancient times. They are representative of Roman power and success. They were vital to the dominance the Romans had over the Mediterranean. Some of them are still used today in varying capacities. The aqueducts had a huge affect on the success of their civilization. The techniques with which the Romans found and transported water were ahead of their time, which resulted in the delivery of clean and cool spring water to everyone. Rome's water system was an incredible engineering achievement.
