Construct an Aqueduct

In this interactive activity from the NOVA Web site, your goal is to supply a city with water both for residential use and for its public baths and fountains. A builder's manual explains how the Romans engineered aqueducts to maintain water flow from source to destination over diverse terrain. Learn how arcades, pressurized pipes, and trenches functioned in these sophisticated water-delivery systems.

This resource can be found on the NOVA: “Secrets of Lost Empires—Roman Baths" Web site.
