10 Things We Wouldn’t Have Without Ancient Greece



Plumbing

Ancient Greeks were very much into fitness and hygiene (hence, the Olympics), and as a result, they developed a plumbing system using aqueducts. These aqueducts would bring water from the mountains for them to use for bathing. Some of the aqueducts are actually still in use today in Athens.

Sinks

In addition to inventing plumbing systems, the Greeks also created sinks with actual running water.
