“This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme
under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 892163”
A non academic dissemination act of the project was to make a presentation of medieval ways,
vessels, and structures of water collection and management at a high school in Messinia.
- an archaeological overview of local cisterns, acqueducts, channels preserved,
- samples of clay conduits, jugs, pitchers and their manufacture by a ceramist, and
- the quality of water in the old days by a biologist
Comments included the impact of hydraulic landscape and environmental resources
in the subsistence of medieval communities, the role of women in carrying
water from the source, the ingenuity (and need) of people in exploitating
and storing the most valuable good.
