A Short History of the First Outdoor Water Features

Short History  First Outdoor Water Features 40539811.jpg A Short History of the First Outdoor Water Features Water fountains were initially practical in purpose, used to deliver water from canals or creeks to towns and villages, supplying the residents with clean water to drink, wash, and cook with. In the years before electrical power, the spray of fountains was driven by gravity only, often using an aqueduct or water source located far away in the surrounding hills. Striking and spectacular, large water fountains have been crafted as monuments in most cultures. The contemporary fountains of modern times bear little resemblance to the first water fountains. Basic stone basins sculpted from local material were the first fountains, used for spiritual functions and drinking water. Rock basins are thought to have been first made use of around 2000 BC. The first fountains put to use in ancient civilizations depended on gravity to manipulate the circulation of water through the fountain. Situated near aqueducts or creeks, the practical public water fountains provided the local population with fresh drinking water. Fountains with ornamental Gods, mythological monsters, and animals began to appear in Rome in about 6 BC, made from stone and bronze. Water for the communal fountains of Rome was delivered to the city via a complicated system of water aqueducts.
