The technology used to secure supplies of urban drinking water can reveal much about the management of the natural landscape. Gortyn in Crete provides an exceptional case study, for the 4th–7th centuries A.D., due to the almost complete preservation of the city’s water system; this can be deduced from its spring-fed capture points, through transportation and storage structures, right up to its distribution outlets to the citizens. These fortunate circumstances allow us to analyse an evolving distribution system, and to study related changes in water use by the inhabitants of this Mediterranean provincial capital.
