Raul Banuelos's insight:

By looking into the ancient sotries from long ago, people like Marina Warner are able to take our beliefs as well as our understanding of past events and see them through a new light. She has been able to see how randomized our culture as human beings can be.

ThoufhNewly translated ancient riddles reveal ancient Mesopotamians made fun of politicians, cracked crude jokes and drank beer, say scientists who studied the 3,500-year-old riddles inscribed on a tablet.

Though these discoveries may seem trivial at first glance, they help recreate the culture of the everyday person in that time. By providing these accounts, we are able to see some similarities that can be seen between our contemporary lives, and these ancient times.

Mark Townsend's curator insight, January 23, 2014 7:02 PM

This article gives us some riddles that were created in ancient Mesopotamia. Obviously, the humor was a lot different than what my generation are used to in this era but it was refreshing to know that back in the day, they still had a sense of humor.

Joshua Lefkowitz's curator insight, February 6, 2014 8:05 PM

Often times it is the everyday occurrences of daily life that give us the best and most realistic images of life through history. I like seeing how we really are not that different from people no matter what misconceptions we hear and read.

Jordan Varona's curator insight, February 8, 2014 2:29 AM

This is a fascinating read and really illustrates how similar people 3500 years ago are to us.

Even today, Egypt has a hold on the public consciousness, Webster says. That's largely because it's one of the few ancient civilizations that has remained intact and relatively preserved.
Raul Banuelos's insight:

The impact that Napoleon's savants has had on the understanding of Egypt's ancient history is enormous. Without their contributions, we may not have been able to begin to understand the complexity and power of the Ancient Egyptian world.

Emily Bian's curator insight, March 25, 2015 6:30 PM

The Neolithic Agricultural Revolution was a time where many people transferred from hunting and gathering to sedentary agriculture. This article talks about patterns of climate change, that influences agriculture and civilization. The most common pattern was drought, destroying many ancient cities. 

The climate change gave way to the Neolithic Agriculture Revolution because ice melted as the earth warmed, giving way to soil and land that can be farmed. 

I think the article was warning us of a severe climate change in the future, like global warming. Personally, I am not very worried about global warming because I don't think bad things will happen that fast. However, I don't like how the ice is thinning out and animal species are dying off. Humans contribute to this a lot. 

Same with that, the climate change changed the world we live in by creating sedentary farming, and creation of civilizations.

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.

Swastika – The Enigmatic Universal Symbol

Swastika – The Enigmatic Universal Symbol | Neolithic Era | Scoop.it
Ancient symbols have a sense of mystery and awe wrapped around it - like the Swastika. The initial impression might revolve around its use by Adolf Hitler's Nazi party, which has stigmatized its use in the Western culture.
Raul Banuelos's insight:

It's a shame how the symbolism of the swatsika has been so twisted from its original meanings. Originally, it symbolized a new beginning or rebirth, however, now it portrays an image of hatred, ignorance, and downright dusgusting violence.
