research_daidalos: mills of crete

Another Daidolos journal article studies the mills of the island of Crete. They describe the efficient low energy use of moving water through this ancient system to support the running of mills. The system is still operational today. It is a relatively simple system that uses the natural topography of the land and small rotating mechanical parts for this infrastructure.

Show technical drawings describing the operation of the mills. It also shows water moving through the system and how with time it has merged with the landscape.

Water has simple physical properties that can help to provide power through its movement.
