The city of Exeter was one of the great provincial capitals of late medieval and early modern England, possessing a range of civic amenities fully commensurate with its size and importance. Among the most impressive of these was its highly sophisticated system of public water supply, including a unique network of underground passages. Most of these ancient passages still survive today.Water in the City provides a richly illustrated history of Exeters famous underground passagesand of Exeter's system of public water supply during the medieval and early modern periods. Illustrated with full colour throughout, Mark Stoyle shows how and why the passages and aqueducts were originally built, considers the technologies that were used in their construction, explains how they were funded and maintained, and reveals the various ways in which the water fountains were used and abused by the townsfolk.
