Rome and England are two of the world nations that share an ancient history of plumbing engineering. The history of Rome highlights the existence of aqueducts, drains, bathing areas and palaces that contained a solid plumbing system in place even thousands of years back. About the year 1700 B.C., legend has it that the Minoan Palace of Knossos on the Crete isle contained at least four individual drainage systems that were designed to empty into sewers. There is also enough evidence to support the existence of fountains and varying types of faucets which when opened released jets of running water, both hot and cold.
The bath complex that was constructed and used by the Romans speaks volumes about their vast knowledge in the areas of planning and construction aspects of engineering. The Roman bath complex consisted of a succession of baths that had capabilities of emptying and refilling at least once per day, which lessened the spread of germs and disadvantages associated with stagnant water. One was also able to opt for a warm steamy bath (with the warm air generated by the heat of hollow bricks) or simply take a dive into cold water.
England traces its plumbing history to several thousands of years back, pretty much like Rome. Hot baths have existed in England since time immemorial. The famed emperor Claudius, developed a natural hot springs complex named “Aquae Sulis”, which comprised of a variety of steam rooms and heated rooms alongside swimming pools.
