[help] Thinking about old things

Apropos of nothing in particular, does anybody have any idea what the oldest continuously maintained system on Earth is?

I’m thinking Chinese canals, Roman waterworks or bridges, and so forth; but the answer could be some more social or political, I suppose. The hierarchy of Judaism, for example.

Heck, does anyone want to take a shot at refining the question?
