The Harappa civilization was discovered and it was very exicting. All the things they had were made and built by the people. Such as homes and other buildings. Much of what we do now is based on the past. We get to now the living conditions in history when discoveries are made. It is like putting a puzzle together.

Popcorn is a truly ancient snack. Archaeologists have uncovered popcorn kernels that are 4,000 years old. They were so well-preserved, they could still pop.

After all, seems that pocpcorn is way too old than what we imagined. It was very essential back in civilizations and if they poccessed it their empire or civilizations was on the rise. Not everyone had these. It is so impressive how some kernels of pocporn has been found more than 4,000 year old and are still preserved and able to pop.

Linguists Reveal Ancient Relations Between Language Families

Linguists Reveal Ancient Relations Between Language Families | Ancient Civilization | Scoop.it
Dutch linguists have developed a new method using Bayesian phylogenetic approaches to analyze the evolution of structural features in more than 50 language families.

 

The study explores how stable over time the structural features of languages are – aspects like word order, the inventory of sounds, or plural marking of nouns. “If at least some of them are relatively stable over long time periods, they promise a way to get at ancient language relationships,” the linguists stated in the paper. “But opinion has been divided, some researchers holding that universally there is a hierarchy of stability for such features, others claiming that individual language families show their own idiosyncrasies in what features are stable and which not.”

 

Using a large database and many alternative methods they show that both positions are right: there are universal tendencies for some features to be more stable than others, but individual language families have their own distinctive profile. These distinctive profiles can then be used to probe ancient relations between what are today independent language families. This work thus has implications for our understanding of differential rates of language change, and by identifying distinctive patterns of change it provides a new window into very old historical processes that have shaped the linguistic map of the world. It shows that there is no conflict between the existence of universal tendencies and factors specific to a language family or geographic area.

The life of a Roman gladiator.


Via Tara Mitchell
elizama ramirez's insight:

Romans treated the barbarians badly and did not like them. In fact they are called barbarians because that is what the Romans named them. Becoming a gladiator was not a choice. The Romans would capture these people and then sale them, once bought the owner decided what they wanted them for and some would send them in trauning and to fight. You lose, you die!

Ancient Links: Plumbing and Toilets in Ancient Rome

Ancient Links: Plumbing and Toilets in Ancient Rome | Ancient Civilization | Scoop.it

Ancient Living - plumbing in ancient Rome


Via Barbara Falkinburg, HGI Middle School Library, claudia patino
elizama ramirez's insight:

Back in the days in ancient Rome people were clean freaks, meaing they liked to be clean and have a decent clean living condition. They had toilets and only the rich were able to afford the use of these toilets and the poor had to use their pots. These people in order to use the toilets had to pay because of the water that had to be used to take all that away.

Gabriel Rodriguez's curator insight, March 7, 2014 11:17 PM

it's interesting to think that in ancient times only the rich could have access to toilets. 

Chase Lee's curator insight, March 8, 2014 2:41 AM

Good for them. If that is what they were used for, then good for them. I am a fan of plumbing. When i look at it that's not really what i see. it looks more artistic than practical.

Patrick Kwong's curator insight, March 9, 2014 4:59 AM

The plumbing system in Rome is an extraordinary feature among the many architecture such as aqueducts and roads. The Romans had a “perfected” version of the ancient pipeline, as public toilets and private homes were connected to a main drainage system, which is comparable to our extremely vast pipeline throughout America. It’s impressive that these Romans were so ahead of their time, but unfortunate that only the higher class could be allowed to live …more hygienically, as the poor  would use urine to launder clothes.
