the scientists bring about new information all the time with their new discoveies creating more questions .. but overall we learn more when new sites are excavated like these ancient aqueducts in rome ..

Cynia Sapp's curator insight, March 4, 2014 1:50 PM

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.
