Category Proposal: Ancient Aqueducts They brough water, now our History.

A Category for "Ancient Aqueducts" should be created. My definition of "ancient" is pré 1900/01/01 and i'm targeting aqueducts destinated to transport water to cities/comunities, not to carry boats or irrigation.
Ancient Aqueducts were designed to transport water for city/comunities. Now they brings us stories of the human effort to get the most vital element of life: water.
"Water" and "History" is a mix i've been enjoing reading the logs in my locationless cache as, i'm sure, the people who logged it accordingly to the rules, was also enjoying.

Ancient IMHO refers to antique Reigns, so it should be finished before the start of medieval times.
E.g. roman aqueducts from 250 a.c.: YES
germanic (ottonian etc.) from 600 a.c.: NO

I confess that "ancient" was a marketing issue, as many other caches (LCs or not) has names to catch other's attention. Remember; this is a hobby not a language summit.
But your post gave me an idea that i already suggested to the "Aqueducts Akimbo"'s owner. Let's wait for his opinion (if he whishes to share it with us).
Until then, the name "ancient" can be changed to "old" if others aggree with you, since the targets are the same as stated in my original post.
