The aqueduct is probably the first thing that you associate with the Ancient Rome after roads, the Colosseum and the Latin language. The Roman Empire spread across a huge portion of the known world at its height and encompassed most of Britain, including our own Hampshire. But what is so special about the Roman aqueduct and why is it so famous?
The aqueduct is in effect architecture that transports vital fresh water to a settlement so it doesn’t have to rely on local water sources. Though this can consist of conduits underneath the ground, the most famous of the Roman aqueducts are the elegant and ornate water bridges that spanned valleys or lowlands. Despite the fact that aqueducts weren’t invented by the Romans, their amazing features of architecture and their sheer size meant that it allowed certain cities to support enormous populations of up to a million.
They worked by being built with a very exact slight gradient that caused gravity to pull the fresh water into the cities, where it could be used as drinking water via public fountains or used in the many public baths. The most famous Roman aqueduct of all is the Aqueduct of Segovia in Spain. Like many Roman aqueducts, it is fantastically preserved despite being almost 2000 years old and is now an icon around the world.
