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.

The discovery of four copper coins and a map might change the historu of Australia.  It is believed this discovery means that inhabitants came upon Australia earlier than predicted.  It's amazing how finding something as simple as old coins can completely rewrite history, in this case the history of Australia.

Ancient art fills in Egypt's ecological history

Ancient art fills in Egypt's ecological history | Neolithic | Scoop.it

Mammal populations shrank during three abrupt climate shifts over the past 6,000 years.

Ancient Egyptian rock inscriptions and carvings on pharaonic tombs chronicle hartebeest and oryx — horned beasts that thrived in the region more than 6,000 years ago. Researchers have now shown that those mammal populations became unstable in concert with significant shifts in Egypt’s climate.

The finding is based on a fresh interpretation of an archaeological and palaeontological record of ancient Egyptian mammals pieced together more than a decade ago by the zoologist Dale Osborn1. Thirty-eight large-bodied mammals existed in Egypt roughly six millennia ago, compared to just eight species today.

“There are interesting stories buried in the data — at the congruence of the artistic and written record,” says Justin Yeakel, an ecologist at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, British Columbia, who presented the research this week at the annual meeting of the Ecological Society of America in Minneapolis, Minnesota. For example, the philosopher Aristotle said 2,300 years ago that lions were present, though rare, in Greece; shortly thereafter, the beasts appeared in the local art record for the last time, Yeakel says.


Via David Connolly
Lucero Trejo Guerrero's insight:

Egyptain art from about 6000 years ago that has carving of mammals, that are on rocks and tombs. These are mammals that seem to have died and not last long due to the shift of Egyptian climate. The only proved that these mammals once lived are the pieces of art that the Egyptians have left.
