This website on Roman aqueducts aims to show what marvellous work has been done by engineers and architects of the Roman empire.
Water is a commodity that all humanity needs, and we dedicate this website to the builders of the Roman aqueducts and to all people who now live in the same lands, and who need the water just as much as our ancestors 2000 years ago.
We hope that this website will show what unites us in this beautiful part of the world around 'our sea',
