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

this articles and sections were interesting as they explain more in detail the history of the mesopotamia culture such as the role of women, literature, etc.

Mystery of King Tut's Death Solved?

Mystery of King Tut's Death Solved? | HISTORY | Scoop.it

The mystery of King Tut’s death might finally be solved, according to one scientist who argues that the secret to the young Pharaohs demise is hidden in plain sight.

 

Dr. Hutan Ashrafian, a lecturer and surgeon at the Imperial College London, says the key to the mystery lies in the art of the time, which depicted King Tut with highly feminine features, including enlarged breasts.

 

The enlarged breasts, he argues, are indicative of a condition known as gynecomastia, which, when added to a host of historical and familial evidence, indicates that Tutankhamun might have suffered and eventually died from temporal lobe epilepsy.
