A variety of different kinds of conduits have been uncovered through archaeological excavations on the isle of Crete, the cradle of Minoan society. In combination with offering water, they spread out water that amassed from deluges or waste material. Stone and terracotta were the substances of choice for these conduits. Terracotta was employed for waterways and water pipes, both rectangular and circular. The cone-like and U-shaped terracotta pipes which were found haven’t been seen in any other culture. Terracotta piping were used to administer water at Knossos Palace, running up to three meters below the flooring. The piping also had other functions such as amassing water and diverting it to a main area for storage. In order to make this conceivable, the conduits had to be fashioned to handle: Subterranean Water Transportation: It is not quite known why the Minoans required to move water without it being spotted. Quality Water Transportation: There is also information that suggests the piping being employed to feed fountains separately from the local system.
