Rowena ButedHIST1014's curator insight, January 24, 2014 3:55 AM

This is a very long documentary about how ancients have healed the sick and diseased. One procedure that was discussed was brought by a man named "Galen" (not exactly sure on the spelling) who was highly looked at for treating his patients. What he brought to the world was the process of bleeding continuously. They cut the vein and they would let the toxins flow out of the body itself. Another was the use of leeches that aided in areas where oxygen was low. Today, amputation would be used. But they believed that leeches would redistribute oxygen and blood to the appropriate areas! 

Cecilia Urbina's curator insight, January 24, 2014 5:24 PM

This is a very interesting and entertaining video that shows us how exactly some people were treated for their illness in the ancient history. It shows the tools that were used and how they figured out how to use those tools properly to treat patients.

Ancient ruined cities that remain a mystery

Ancient ruined cities that remain a mystery | Ancient Cities | Scoop.it

CRUMBLING walls. Breathtaking temples. Mysterious cities built entirely underground.

They are the astounding feats of architecture that have been left to decay for centuries.

But while they may be in ruins, the sites of the world's most ancient and intriguing cities continue to wow travellers.

From the popular Machu Picchu site in Peru, to the Pompeii ruins and the lesser-known Derinkuyu site in Turkey, here are eight amazing ruined cities that remain shrouded in mystery - or remain perplexing to this day, according to the science website io9.com.

One thing's for sure, the world is a fascinating place.

1. Palenque, Mexico

This scoop has a lot of great interesting facts on ancient cities that are now long forgotten but still widely popular in the traveling world. Some of the cities we are studying in class such as Catal Huyuk and Pompeii show up in this article.

Cassandra Folkerth's curator insight, October 16, 2013 1:24 AM

I love reading about the ancient architecture. Its just so cool. How did tehy come up with that and build ALL that without any modern technology.

Sarah Kerr's curator insight, November 29, 2013 3:25 PM

I chose this scoop because, it is fascinating to think that there are places out there in the world that are full of mystery and unanswered questions. The places mentioned in this article are,  Great ZImbabwe, Cahokia in the U.S., Machu Pichu in Peru, Catalhoyuk in Turkey, Pompeii in Italy,  Palenqus in Mexico and Derinkuyu also in Turkey.

Ancient Civilizations and Buried Kings of Northern Peru | Adrian Seah

Ancient Civilizations and Buried Kings of Northern Peru | Adrian Seah | Ancient Cities | Scoop.it


Chiclayo and Trujillo in Northern Peru was a blur of ancient civilisations, pyramids and royal tombs. Contrary to popular knowledge, Peru was not only about the Inca civilisation, there was a whole string of prior civilisations that left their own indelible mark on the history and culture of present day Peru. Amongst the long string of people who have lived in Peru since ancient times, the Chavin, Paracas, Moche, Nazca, Tiahuanaco, Wari and Chimu people all came and went before the arrival of the Inca. Northern Peru is strewn with the remnants of their once great civilisations. Pyramids worn down into sandy lumps, impossibly elaborate royal tombs of ancient rulers like the Tomb of the Lord of Sipan, ancient temples and whole cities bear witness to the ingenuity of the ancient peoples. They also offer an insight into the lives, technology, beliefs and superstitions of these peoples. At some point, I lost track of what was built by the Moche and what was built by the Chimu, or the characteristics of Wari pottery as it all blended into one great big historical slurry for me. What was absolutely fascinating to me however, was the fact that many of the ancient civilisations, many separated by vast geographical distances and sometimes hundreds or thousands of years, have in their building of monuments representing their gods and beliefs, resulted in pyramids of one form or another....

Prior to this article, I always thought that the Inca civilization was the first settle and build a city in Peru (Macchu Piccu). What intrigues me is we discover new ancient cites and sites every year and I wonder what will be a ground-breaking discovery for the years to come? 

claudia patino's curator insight, January 16, 2014 9:37 PM

what I am woundering is if the Chavin, Paracas, Moche, Nazca, Tiahuanaco, Wari and Chimu people are all different communities, or are they named differently because they specialized in something? It was also guessing that all those names are because they lived during different time periods. Yet it would not make sense because how is it that they understood language. When a new community forms they have to learn communicating with one another.

elizama ramirez's curator insight, January 25, 2014 12:27 AM

Tombs were found and pyramids by Peru. Much of the art in the walls of the pyramids is still quite clear to see and through that we can know more about them. Also, the archeologist say and they do not really yet explain why these tribes or civilizations near eachother have a total different believe and way of doing their things. The tombs were of Lords, and important people.

Wandering in the ancient cities of Rhodes and Lindos. Walking along the caldera in Santorini, waiting for the fabulous sunset. Traveling back in time to the apogee of the Greek civilization by standing near the entrance of the Acropolis. But also, meet the people, play cards with them, taste their homemade Porto, get lost in stone paved streets and enjoy.....
