Sustaining Rome : The supply and use of water in the Eastern Caelian, Rome 1st to 8th centuries CE

The project brings together skills from hydrology, hydraulic engineering and water modelling together with archaeological analysis to explore water supply to south-east Rome and beyond. 

Drawing on the rich evidence from the study region for water-related infrastructure, from pipes and cisterns, through drains, latrines and bath systems, through to major sections of the Claudio-Neronian aqueduct, this PhD will offer an important new perspective on the role of water is sustaining success transformations of the city.
