WATER REALMS is a unique book that surveys water management and technologies in ancient societies. From the flushing toilets of ancient Crete to the qanats of Persia, aqueducts of Rome, cascading tank systems of Sri Lanka and the great baths of the Indus Valley to the eel traps of southern Australia, ancients on all continents were managing water in unique ways. Without adapting to climate change, modern civilization may go the way of the Mayans or Mesopotamian cultures who disintegrated when the water ran out.
