Industry Reviews

'... brings together a vast quantity of information in a lively and highly readable form, with extensive notes and illustrations and a comprehensive bibliography. The index is particularly well done. Anyone seriously interested in the working of Roman aqueducts (and even the casually curious) will be using this valuable survey again and again.' Harry B. Evans, American Journal of Archaeology; 'Hodge triumphantly combines deep scholarship and lucid interpretation, while guiding non-technical readers considerately and painlessly through the inevitable quagmire of hydraulic principles.... the book is thorough, utterly practical and highly readable - at times even funny - and it will be a long time before it is superseded' M.J.T. Lewis, Nature
