Rock and clay were the materials of choice for these channels. There were terracotta pipelines, both circular and rectangle-shaped as well as pathways made from the same material. These consisted of cone-like and U-shaped clay piping which were unique to the Minoans.

Most of the freestanding statues were of youthful, winsome male or female (kore) Greeks and are known as kouros figures.

Water Delivery Strategies in Historic Rome

Water Delivery Strategies Historic Rome 170300620517.jpg Water Delivery Strategies in Historic Rome Aqua Anio Vetus, the first raised aqueduct built in Rome, started off delivering the men and women living in the hills with water in 273 BC, even though they had counted on natural springs up till then. Outside of these aqueducts and springs, wells and rainwater-collecting cisterns were the sole technological innovations around at the time to supply water to locations of greater elevation. To furnish water to Pincian Hill in the early sixteenth century, they implemented the emerging process of redirecting the circulation from the Acqua Vergine aqueduct’s underground channel. All through the length of the aqueduct’s passage were pozzi, or manholes, that gave access. The manholes made it more straightforward to maintain the channel, but it was also possible to use buckets to pull water from the aqueduct, as we saw with Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi when he bought the property from 1543 to 1552, the year he died. He didn’t get an adequate amount water from the cistern that he had manufactured on his property to obtain rainwater. To provide himself with a much more streamlined system to obtain water, he had one of the manholes opened, offering him access to the aqueduct below his property.
