The Romans were among the finest engineers in the ancient world. Among the most impressive of their engineering feats was the Barbegal mills and aqueduct. This is a complex of watermills located in southern France and is regarded as one of the world’s first industrial complexes. A team of researchers have now solved the mystery of the Barbegal mills’ hydraulics and its workings.
The team of scientists led by Professor Cees Passchier of the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz in Germany investigated the complex. Little is known about the hydraulics and technologies that powered the Barbegal mills. This is despite the fact that mills and other forms of hydraulic engineering were very important in the economy and society of Rome.
