It's funny how knowing there are still mudbrick houses in poor cities of India, where in here, the Jormo House Models were dated way thousands years ago.  

Sheena Dhillon's curator insight, January 23, 2014 11:51 PM

Ancient Mesopotamia is thought to be the beginning of civilization. This is thought to be the case due to the fact that they are the ones who created and developed many items in which we use today and are still present in our lives such as language and even government. This website gives a brief synopsis of it. 

Andrea Arminguay's curator insight, January 24, 2014 11:50 PM

The color purple connotes royalty and that comes from the trouble and expense that went into creating it.  The Phoenicians, a group lived lived prior to the Romans, actually created the method of creating it but the Roman Empire was much larger and influencial.
