L'eau "potable" de la Rome antique était fortement contaminée au plomb | water news | Scoop.it
Un demi-siècle après que le saturnisme fut désigné comme le responsable de la chute de l'Empire romain, une salve de publications visant à réfuter cette idée mit un terme à cette théorie. Même si aujourd'hui le plomb n'est donc plus

Via Aurore Alcalay
Sylvain Rotillon's insight:

On constate la présence d'un pic de plomb dans les enregistrements sédimentaires montrant une pollution importante à l'époque romaine. L'eau n'était pas la seule source de contamination, mais elle y contribuait. Le vin était aussi chargé en plomb, utilisé alors comme additif.
