The broad deciduous forests in northern hills of Thrace conceal some of the greatest monuments to ancient water engineering, vast relics of a system of one of the longest and most extensive water channels ever constructed. Where did this water come from and how was it channeled and distributed in Istanbul? For the past twenty years Turkish water engineers and remote sensing experts together with British archaeologists have been able to investigate the sources of water and the course of the channels with some amazing and surprising results and discoveries.
