Book Description Crowood, 2011. Condition: New. A mill dating to 150 CE at Ickham in Kent is the earliest evidence of the harnessing of water power in Britain, and the technology was in common use throughout the Middle Ages before providing the power behind the mills, pumps and forges of the early Industrial Revolution. This illustrated history examines the development of water power - from simple water wheels and dams to modern hydroelectric power generation and systems developed to exploit energy from waves and tides.
