  • Firmitas, utilitas, venustas, or pulvis puteolanus cum calce: Celebrating
           the Foundations of John Peter Oleson's Career
    • Abstract: John analyzing the technology of a Bedouin stringed-instrument.In 1978, I (ANS) was about to finish my undergraduate degree and had applied to several graduate programs to continue my studies in classics. Professor David Campbell, who had come from the University of Victoria to a conference in Calgary, made the time to talk to me about the program at Victoria and emphasized that my interest in archaeology could be greatly enhanced by working with a new member of the department who was just beginning a new project: underwater work at Caesarea Maritima in Israel. The bait was taken hook, line, and sinker, and I went to Victoria. That was my introduction to John and the beginning of a very long, very enjoyable, and ... Read More

  • Building Maritime Infrastructure in the Age of Augustus: The Role of
           Marine Concrete
    • Abstract: According to the ancient Roman biographer Suetonius, who wrote in the early second century ad, Augustus proclaimed that he had found a city made of brick and left it in marble (Suet. Aug. 28.3). No doubt there is more than a little hyperbolic self-aggrandizement in his alleged statement, but there is also considerable literal and figurative truth in his boast. After nearly a century of civil strife and external wars, Augustus ended this time of tumult with his victory over Antony and Cleopatra at Actium in 31 bc and established an era of peace and prosperity. More specifically, as he detailed in his own personal official account of his accomplishments as Rome's leader, the Res Gestae Divi Augusti (RGDA IV.19–24) ... Read More

  • Maritime Reflections
    • Abstract: Last year I had the task—and pleasure—of reading the entire manuscript of Building for Eternity, and saw yet again John Oleson's editorial skill in bringing a great work to completion.Now he can pause, and reflect, before the next challenge, which I am sure he will enjoy. I am also sure that there will be afterthoughts and new ideas. I had the experience a year earlier of bringing a long project on ancient shipsheds to completion, with Boris Rankov, and I am happy to feel we are already getting feedback as well as afterthoughts. This paper seeks to illustrate this point, with new examples of the challenge of identifying installations for hauling ships and maintaining them; of conservation of such installations ... Read More

  • The Screw Threads of Antiquity: To Raise, to Adjust, to Measure, to Press,
           and to Hold
    • Abstract: There is a widespread perception that although the principle of the screw was known and used for a variety of purposes, it was not used to join components of artefacts securely, nowadays the most common use as the familiar nut and bolt. F.E. Graves, for example, commences his article on nuts and bolts by stating unequivocally that "The notion that a threaded bolt and a matching nut could serve as a fastener dates back only to the fifteenth century."1 Earlier examples do in fact exist, and are the subject of this paper, but are rare. There were good reasons for this, not least the difficulties of fashioning a workable female screw thread in metal.Perhaps the best-known screw was the water-raising device, commonly ... Read More

  • Recent Developments in Aqueduct Research
    • Abstract: Ancient aqueducts were never built for their own sake, just as water mains are not built for their own sake today, and being manmade structures, they must also be considered examples of art. This is particularly obvious for Roman aqueducts, which display design details and operational concepts that impress even the modern observer. At the same time, their efficient combination of water catchment, transport, and distribution made it possible for them to supply an abundance of water to cities, military camps, and country villas. What used to be in the hands of a single Roman architect would today be divided between engineers of several disciplines, a striking juxtaposition that urges the examination of Roman ... Read More

  • Millers and Millwrights in Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages
    • Abstract: The professional production of plain bread in Rome is reflected already in Plautus' comedies around 200 bc1 and by a somewhat vague notice by Pliny the Elder, perhaps alluding to the organization of a trade guild for the city's bakers, the collegium pistorum, at the time of the war against Perseus (c. 170 bc).2The noun pistor is derived from the verb pinsere, to beat or to crush, and initially meant precisely "miller."3 Very soon, however, the combination of donkey-mills and ovens—so well known from bakeries at Pompeii, Ostia, and other Roman towns—gave the word pistor the general sense of "baker." Its original meaning is, in fact, not in evidence after Plautus. Instead, we meet, from the last century bc onward, a ... Read More

  • The Effect of Air Bubbles in Ancient Long-Distance Pipelines
    • Abstract: Lengthy stretches of pipeline in ancient aqueducts frequently served to cross a valley that was too wide or deep to be circumvented by an open channel or crossed by means of an arcaded bridge. This kind of pipeline, known as an inverted siphon, works according to the principle of communicating vessels. Figure 1 illustrates the principle. An open-channel aqueduct discharges into a header tank on the far side of the valley. From the header tank, the water enters the pipe flowing down one slope, crosses the valley, and rises up the opposite side into a receiving tank, from which it continues to the location of end use. Some 60 inverted siphons from Greek and Roman antiquity have been identified.1Air bubbles in pipes ... Read More
