Further reading[edit]

Has somebody by chance some of the articles I posted under 'Further reading' at home? Gun Powder Ma 21:35, 23 March 2007 (UTC) Heyaa

Great photo... copyright status?[edit]

Here's a great photo that would add a lot to the article: http://www.mmdtkw.org/03-04BarbegalMill.jpg
Unfortunately i can't find any contact info for the owner on the main page. Anyone have any idea where this pic is from? User-created? From a book? -Monolith2 (talk) 03:04, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

    • I believe this drawing came from the Scientific American, Nov. 1990 pp 106-111, where you will find the black and white drawing[1]. It would therefore be protected. Your source simply added the yellow background.Tvbanfield (talk) 15:57, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
        • While this specific picture may or may not be protected, I doubt that a visual model/representation of a historical object itself could be copyrighted. Probably the best solution would be for someone to make a rough sketch representing the basic structure of this object by following what is represented in this above picture. This way the information provided by this picture would become available here and any potential copyright issues would be avoided. Abvgd (talk) 09:50, 17 December 2010 (UTC)
        • BTW, a quick Google image search will provide a multitude of depictions of the mill based around the same basic model. Here are just a few additional pictures: [1] ; [2] ; [3] ; [4] ; [5]. So, take your pick :) A talented artist would be abe to create a quick sketch quicker than it took me to post these images here ;P Abvgd (talk) 06:33, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

I have some photos taken in April 2007 of the ruins, can be used if required. http://www.flickr.com/photos/30261128@N04/ Geoportail satellite photo of the site: Geoportail satellite photo —Preceding unsigned comment added by Licornenoire (talkcontribs) 06:48, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

Totally implausible numbers in the article[edit]

4.5 tonnes ? per day? for 10 thousand or 40 thousand people? Does not compute. 100-400 kilos flour per day per person? Even if they fed all their livestock on bread? No way. Please quote reliable source or maybe refigure? — Preceding unsigned comment added by EideticGeezer (talkcontribs) 14:19, 25 October 2015 (UTC)
