Amanda Kelly has been mapping the aqueducts in the Knossos region of Crete since 2019 as part of her field project, “The Aqueducts of the Greater Iraklio Area” (AGIA), funded by the Gerda Henkel Foundation. Amanda’s fieldwork initially targeted the Roman aqueduct supplying Knossos, but developed into a much wider chronological survey when she identified the Ottoman-Egyptian and Venetian aqueducts supplying what is now modern Iraklio. In this lecture, Amanda will focus on the Venetian aqueduct, highlighting the many challenges faced by engineers in securing the civic water supply for Candia.
