Roman Aqueducts

Let it flow!

Today we created our own version of a Roman aqueduct.  It was interesting to consider the gradient that the guttering needed to be held at to ensure that the water flowed at an appropriate speed.  Too high and the water would run too quickly and risk flooding, too slowly and the water would not flow to the town!
