Rome's water source discovered

Recommended Posts

Here's a link to a good video documenting the discovery of the source to the aqueduct that supplied some (all?) of Rome's water.

 

Interesting temple/chamber constructed into the waterworks that corresponds to a coin minted during Trajan's reign.

 

The walls of the tunnels are painted "Egyptian Blue." Unleaded paint, I hope!

We actually had quite a long discussion on the discovery of the source of the Aqua Traiana back in February 2010so it is good to know that Ted O'Neill's videos have finally been posted on Discovery.

 

Thanks for this spot Centurion Marcus Valerius.

 

Mind you if they have only just put up the video's it appears to have taken them about 8 or 9 months since Ted and his colleagues announced the discovery and made the video's available. :(
