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.

Discovery of an Early Bronze Age settlement at Jabal al-Qarn near Petra

Discovery of an Early Bronze Age settlement at Jabal al-Qarn near Petra | Early Civilization | Scoop.it

Presently celebrating the 200th anniversary of its re-identification by Johann Ludwig Burckhardt in 1812, the ancient city of Petra is experiencing a surge in interest. In the landscape surrounding this famed World Heritage site, however, there is a wealth of archaeological potential that spans over 1 million years—including occupation by three hominin species (Homo erectus, Homo neanderthalensis and Homo sapiens sapiens)—to more recent historical settlements. This short article introduces an Early Bronze Age site north of Petra, discovered by a Brown University project designed to document the entire range of occupation in the Petra region.
