Water Delivery Strategies in Historic Rome

Rome’s very first elevated aqueduct, Aqua Anio Vetus, was built in 273 BC; before that, people living at higher elevations had to depend on natural springs for their water. Throughout this time period, there were only two other innovations capable of delivering water to elevated areas, subterranean wells and cisterns, which gathered rainwater. To deliver water to Pincian Hill in the early sixteenth century, they utilized the new method of redirecting the motion from the Acqua Vergine aqueduct’s underground network. During the length of the aqueduct’s network were pozzi, or manholes, that gave access. The manholes made it less demanding to maintain the channel, but it was also achievable to use buckets to extract water from the aqueduct, as we viewed with Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi when he operated the property from 1543 to 1552, the year he died. The cistern he had made to collect rainwater wasn’t adequate to meet his water demands.

The Effect of the Norman Conquest on Anglo Saxon Landscaping

Anglo-Saxons encountered extraordinary modifications to their day-to-day lives in the latter half of the eleventh century due to the accession of the Normans. The Normans were much better than the Anglo-Saxons at architecture and horticulture when they came into power. But yet there was no time for home life, domestic design, and adornment until the Normans had conquered the whole realm. Monasteries and castles served different purposes, so while monasteries were enormous stone structures built in only the most fruitful, wide dales, castles were set upon blustery knolls where the people focused on understanding offensive and defensive techniques. Peaceful pastimes such as gardening were out of place in these destitute citadels. The early Anglo-Norman style of architecture is depicted in Berkeley Castle, which is perhaps the most unscathed illustration we have. It is said that the keep was created during William the Conqueror's time. A large terrace intended for exercising and as a means to stop enemies from mining under the walls runs about the building. On 1 of these terraces lies a charming bowling green: it's covered in grass and flanked by an old yew hedge that is formed into the shape of rough ramparts.
