DIGITAL EARTH: POMPEII

Apr 13, 2017

Travel alongside Wayne Lorenz of Wright Water Engineers and follow the path of the ancient aqueduct that served Pompeii and the Naples Bay area. Lorenz has studied ancient Roman water supplies for nine years and will share his panoramic photos of these awe-inspiring features. Start in the Apennine Mountains from the Dragon’s Mouth to see the springs tapped by the Romans. Then fly along the alignment of the Augustan (Serino) Aqueduct, focusing on focal points of Lorenz’s scientific research along the way, including Pompeii and its water systems. End up in the large Piscina Mirabilis storage reservoir, which served the western Roman naval fleet with potable water.
