The Earliest Fountains

Friday, June 26th, 2020

The earliest fountains, found in Mesopotamia, date from around 3000 BC.

They consisted of a series of basins which made use of a natural spring.

In ancient times, fountain designers relied on gravity, channeling water from a higher source in a closed system to provide pressure.

The aqueducts of ancient Rome carried water down from the mountains for both drinking and ornamental purposes.

Mechanically operated fountains became familiar during the 15th century in Italy.
