Roman Aqueduct
Ancient Roman Aqueduct Pont du Gard near Nimes France.
About this creation
A portion of the Pont du Gard aqueduct built by the Romans about 18 kilometers north east of Nimes in southern Gaul (France). This Lego model is more or less microfig scale since the real thing was about 50 meters high.

   The Pont du Gard is part of an extensive aqueduct system about 50 KM long that provided water for the city of Nimes. The Gard river is shown here as a 32x32 blue baseplate (you see that I give scenery a lot of attention).

   The strip of blue on the top level represents the water channel. After almost 2000 years it probably leaks. The first level is wide enough to also server as a road bridge.

   The real Pont du Gard has been maintained for tourists by replacing about 800 tons of stone over the years. This is about 5% of the mass of the entire aqueduct. The real aqueduct should last a very long time. This constrasts greatly with this Lego version which has already been torn down to make way for a Lego Wal*Mart.

Hello,Iím a math teacher. Iíd like to create an activity ,for my teenager students : doing the same construction as yours. I believe this would be a fun way to learn the math behind the construction. Could you give me a hand ? Telling me more about how youíve done ? Such as : what are the precise pieces needed, the scale you chose, Ö I guess the more you are willing to tell me, the easiest itís going to be for me. Iím not used to lego constructions, for now. It would be very nice of you to give me the keys of your construction. Thanks. Sylvain L

Sorry to suond like a total critic, but how do the cars get around the arches? Also, I'm doing a school project on Roman aqueducts (that's actually what led me to your Pont du Gard picture), and I'm pretty sure the River Gard has very steep banks.
