A short history of harbour engineering Discussion on the paper by J. P. M. Pannell

Mr. Peter Mason (Member of Council) said it had been mentioned in the paper that it looked as though the Roman engineering organization for large engineering projects was very similar to that of today. There had been bills of quantities, etc. and work had been carried out by contractors. He wished to know how the engineering had been done.
