There is a growing interest in historical groundwater thinking and use by hydrogeologists, water historians, and others. This book aims to develop a cohesive historical narrative of how many ideas and practices used today had their foundations laid down before the Scientific Revolution. In addition, it re-examines past ideas and practices to see if they can be re-used or adapted today in the light of our climatic difficulties. Archaeologists are also beginning to appreciate the role water has played in past cultures, and this book will further enhance their research.
