Next was the city of Hama where ancient wooden water wheels, 20 metres in diameter, are still in use scooping water from the river and tipping it into the aqueducts where it tavels to irrigation channels to the surrounding fields. Mosaics show that water wheels have been used in this form in Hama since the 4th century AD.
