Water Delivery Solutions in Historic Rome

Rome’s first elevated aqueduct, Aqua Anio Vetus, was built in 273 BC; prior to that, citizens residing at higher elevations had to depend on local streams for their water. When aqueducts or springs weren’t easily accessible, people dwelling at higher elevations turned to water pulled from underground or rainwater, which was made possible by wells and cisterns. Starting in the sixteenth century, a new method was introduced, using Acqua Vergine’s subterranean segments to deliver water to Pincian Hill. As originally constructed, the aqueduct was provided along the length of its channel with pozzi (manholes) constructed at regular intervals. Although they were originally developed to make it possible to service the aqueduct, Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi started using the manholes to get water from the channel, commencing when he purchased the property in 1543. Even though the cardinal also had a cistern to collect rainwater, it couldn't provide a sufficient amount of water. To give himself with a much more practical system to gather water, he had one of the manholes opened up, providing him access to the aqueduct below his property.

Anglo-Saxon Landscapes During the Norman Conquest

Anglo-Saxons experienced great changes to their day-to-day lives in the latter half of the eleventh century due to the accession of the Normans.Anglo-Saxon Landscapes Norman Conquest 75800617194.jpg The Normans were better than the Anglo-Saxons at architecture and horticulture when they came into power. But the Normans had to pacify the overall territory before they could focus on home life, domestic architecture, and decoration. Castles were more basic constructions and often erected on blustery hills, where their people devoted both time and space to practicing offense and defense, while monasteries were large stone buildings, commonly located in the widest, most fruitful hollows. The calm method of gardening was unlikely in these dismal bastions. The early Anglo-Norman style of architecture is exemplified in Berkeley Castle, which is conceivably the most unscathed sample we have. It is said that the keep was created during William the Conqueror's time. As a technique of deterring assailants from tunneling underneath the walls, an immense terrace encompasses the building. On one of these parapets is a scenic bowling green covered in grass and enclosed by an aged hedge of yew that has been shaped into coarse battlements.
