Aquarius has been a part of human history for thousands of years. The word "buc", which meant jug in ancient English, is believed to have entered into use for the first time in the thirteenth century and is still part of our constantly evolving language, from colloquial to computer terms.

From early childhood – the scoop bucket and made pasta, which they enjoy in a sandpit or on the beachfront, until the end of human life when the bucket kicks people in every expression, this essential component is part of daily life and language, and is used in every part of the world.

Old buckets

The earliest images of these useful objects are found on sculptures dating back to around 3200 BC, showing Pharaoh Narmer with a servant holding a bucket. Babylonian Assyrian sculptures contain gods and genes with small buckets, containing shiny water in one hand and pine cone to sprinkle in the other. Mexico's old Olympic sculptures also show priests with little buckets.

Greek artifacts

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York contains a Greek clay (Setola) bucket dating back to 350 BC. These bulldozers were used to manufacture, cool and serve wine. The museum also has a very rare club made of glass with silver knobs, which is unusual, as metal surfaces were more common.

Roman firefighters

The vigils, like the Alexandrian firefighters, became known as "Little Bulldozer Fellows" (Spartuli), or Bulldozer Brigades. The buckets they used were made of rope sealed by the stadium. Human "bulldozer chains" continue to be used by firefighters, and are still used by rescuers for earthquake victims to this day.

Medieval Europe

In northern European countries, buckets were made of metal, wood, and leather. Wooden buckets are made by Coopers with sticks or rope handles. Aside from multiple household uses: milking, drawing water from wells, sanitation, and construction, it was also used in war machines such as slingshots as a form of early germ warfare, and used to throw waste, dead and diseased human parts of the body on the fortification walls of cities, castles, and reserves.

Galvanized iron buckets

Patented by Stanislas Sorrell in 1837, galvanized buckets are sturdy and rust-proof quickly replacing leather and wood buckets. The metal buckets with different parts and removable cups are made for use in lunch containers. Enamel lunch buckets known as gamelles and graniteware containers with lids continued into the last century. The basic metal bucket has been modified for more uses, including coal cylinders, poultry feeders and drinkers, mop buckets and backhoe buckets.

Plastic bucket

Cheap, light, and multicolored plastic buckets became available for the first time in 1967, in a variety of shapes and sizes. It was quickly adopted by the food industry to sell ice cream, sweets, ready-made chicken and other foodstuffs. Plastic buckets are used to sell cleaning products, animal feed, fertilizer, toys, nails, paper clips and many other items. Constant use seems guaranteed, regardless of recent developments and inventions.
