AN UNDERSHOT WATERWHEEL

An Undershot Waterwheel

Image description.

The Waterwheel is an ancient device that uses flowing or falling water to create power by means of a set of paddles mounted around a wheel. The Waterwheel is in use for several millenia now throughout Caelereth, especially at the southern Sarvonian continent, and has served its purpose to mill flour or to contriute to foundry work. Here we see an idyllic ancient mill with a typical undershot waterwheel, where the water is pushing the wheel forward. Picture drawn by Bard Judith.
