The Romans are well known for their many colossal and ingenious works of architecture and engineering but perhaps most of all for their gravity-driven water-distributing and waste-evacuating aqueducts - some of which are still in use today. More than a marvel of ancient plumbing, these aqueducts are also an early example of renewable water power for mines, forges, mills and baths. Water was used in hydraulic mining to prospect for, crush and wash ore and likely to operate hammers to crush ore and water wheels.
