Rome's ancient aqueducts mapped

Rome's ancient aqueducts mapped | Ancient Artifacts, Art, and Architecture | Scoop.it
They abseil down access wells and clamber through crevices to access the 11 aqueducts that supplied Rome, which still run for hundreds of kilometres underground and along stunning viaducts.Armed with laser rangefinders, GPS technology and remote control robots, a group of speleologists is completing the first ever mapping of the aqueducts of ancient Rome on archaeology's "final frontier".

Via Monica Gonzalez, Cindy Garcia
Cynia Sapp's insight:

The mission was for Vicovaro and his team to go down access wells and clamber through crevices to access.These eleven aqueducts were built in ancient Rome, which still run for hundreds of kilometers underground. It is interesting how modernized this system was. You wonder how long this took to build the aqueducts to build, considering the limited technology they had. This provides evidence of their engineering skills.

Sarah Kerr's curator insight, October 3, 2013 9:34 PM

This scoop is about a Roman mosaic of how women are the reasons for wars and other evils. Only the rich were able to have mosaics in their homes so, the controversial mosiacs were attributed to the ideas of those who had the money and social class to have them built in their homes.

Cindy Garcia's curator insight, October 19, 2013 3:50 AM

In this Article, Researches say that many of the Roman Mosaic reference that “Women were the cause of wars and other evils”.  The role of woman are broken into three roles domestic Housewife, erotic image, or a Mythological Figures. Only those with elite roles were able to have Mosaics in their homes. Those who had money and social status had mosaic built in their homes. ("Blog."

Decatur- Back in October we told you about a historic Decatur museum that sat in the same spot for 18 years. Now it has a new home.
Cynia Sapp's insight:

Some beautiful Ancient African artifacts  from the African American Cultural and Genealogical Society of Illinois are in storage. This is because the building owner did not renew the lease. The building had been in the same spot for eighteen years. It is great that these artifacts have a home, but hopefully they don't become damaged while they are in storage.

This would be a scary find if i was the diver seeing something with the silhouette of a person. The great thing is it was actually just a statue. I wonder if it was a personal statue of Apollo or one that could have possibly come from a local temple or shrine like place in the area from that time period.
