In the course of conservation works carried out in the flour-mill compound in ‘Akko, the remains of the mills were documented and their various elements and methods of operation were studied. An analysis of the water-powered technology indicated that the mills were operated by the slanting-chute technology. The water from Nahal Na‘aman was conveyed to the mills by channels. These mills are part of the flour-production industry that flourished in the country during the Ottoman period.
