Ephesus Municipal Water System Analysis DLESE Reviewed Collection
This project examines the entire water system of an ancient city, including supply, distribution, use, and drainage. Until now, individual water system elements have been studied as archaeological objects, but infrequently subjected to analysis by such disciplines as fluids engineering and urban history. This work is part of two larger long-term studies, the first concerning the relationship between physical setting and urban growth in the Greco-Roman world, and the second a comparative study of Old and New World water management techniques in the pre-modern period.
