Steven Mithen Thirst : Water and Power in the Ancient World
The history of water and society in the ancient world, a history still being revealed. The rise and fall of societies has depended on an ability to harness and manage water, making it the driver of historical change. Using examples from a five-year archaeological project in the Jordan Valley, this book examines how water’s domestication changed society and civilisation: from the first flushing toilets in Knossos, to the viaducts of Petra, to the Greek and Roman bath houses, water has been the constant factor in an ever-evolving world. Steven Mithen is Dean of Science and Professor of Archaeology at the University of Reading, and a Fellow of the British Academy since 2004.
