An outline of the water distribution technology in Constantinople

Andrews, Tara Lee (3 March 2007). An outline of the water distribution technology in Constantinople (Unpublished). In: Oxford Byzantine Society Graduate Student Day. Oxford. 03.03.2007.

The question of how Constantinople got enough water to support its vast population has been an important area of research. A great deal of valuable work has been done in recent years on the water supply and its technology. Something that has been less thoroughly investigated is the water usage in Constantinople. Once the water was collected in the city, how was it dispersed? How was it used? This paper attempts to trace water distribution, use, and disposal in the city. I will use a combination of literary and material sources to understand the technology of the Constantinopolitan water supply.
