Main Event ERN 2022 -UPCT-Workshop-“Roman hydraulic engineering. Paradigms and realities”
Roman water supplies were made up of underground pipes, most with pipes of various materials. The topographical and mathematical knowledge required for its realization was far superior to those assumed. Springs were the main source of supply for human consumption. However, most of the dams and arches considered as Roman in Spain do not present a constructive technique, or other conclusive evidence, that identify them as such.
Isaac Moreno Gallo is a Public Works Engineer from the Ministry of Public Works and graduated in Geography and History. He has worked for various public administrations as a specialist in Roman Engineering, participating in numerous projects identifying Roman roads, technical studies of Roman water pipes, research on ancient technique, ancient topographic instruments and other facets related to Roman engineering.
He has organized Congresses on Roman Engineering, some of international character, and has participated in many others. He is the author of several books on the Roman Ways, including:
Description of the Via de Italia to Hispania in the provinces of Burgos and Palencia. (Excelentísima Diputación de Burgos, 2000) Roman Roads. Constructive Engineering and Technique.
