I though this was very interesting because i can connect it with todays lecture .Professor Kaatz was saying that the climate in The part where Israel is now was different. It was much cooler and it rain more and now it is all dessert. In this article it also talks about that can be one of the key factors for some civilization to fall.

Land of the tomb raiders: Bulgaria is trying to claw back tens of thousands of ancient artefacts plundered from its historic sites in a £25m-a-year export racket

Land of the tomb raiders: Bulgaria is trying to claw back tens of thousands of ancient artefacts plundered from its historic sites in a £25m-a-year export racket | Keerahjade | Scoop.it
Real-life vampires, giant rock vaginas, ancient sites to rival those of Greece and Rome – Bulgaria’s archaeologists are putting their country on the map of world history, but first they have to stop the mafia stealing its treasures.

 

The illegal diggers come at night with shovels and sacks, hunting through the places where they know the professionals have been. They’re looking for the tonnes of ancient artefacts that lie hidden in Bulgaria’s soil.

 

In the past two decades, Bulgarian law enforcement agencies say this plunder has turned into a €30m-a-year industry for local gangs, putting it a close third behind drugs and prostitution. The artefacts – gold Roman coins, ancient Greek silver, Thracian military helmets – wind up with falsified documents in auction houses in Europe and North America, or increasingly with wealthy Arab and Asian collectors.

 

Police say there are 300 criminal treasure-hunting gangs in Bulgaria at present, but as many as 50,000 people are thought to be involved in illegal digging in some form. Entire villages have been known to take part in some impoverished corners of Bulgaria.

Byzantine Empire (Byzantium) including its cities, kings, religion and wars

Byzantine Empire (Byzantium) including its cities, kings, religion and wars | Keerahjade | Scoop.it

The most brilliant of medieval civilizations was the Eastern Roman Empire. The Roman Empire was divided in AD 395 into two parts. The Western half, ruled from Rome, fell to the tribal Germanic peoples in the 5th century. The Eastern half, known as the Byzantine Empire, lasted for more than 1,000 years. Until the mid-11th century, when it began to decline in power, the Byzantine Empire was one of the leading civilizations in the world.

Cindy Garcia's curator insight, October 19, 2013 6:16 AM

In this article, it is mention that in Ancient Greece, the Greek life was ruled by Religion. The temples were created big and beautiful places in Greece because of their strong religion. Architecture in Ancient Greece was magnificent. Greek had three types of architectural systems; Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian. They each required different structures and for different use. ("Acropolis." Ancient Greece. University Press Inc, n.d. 2013-2012)

Khai Tran's curator insight, January 27, 2014 4:23 PM

Built many beautiful architectures and some of the structures we build today is similar or ideas of what was built back then

Parthenon is a temple on the Athenian Acropolis, Greece , and is dedicated to the Greek goddess Athena. They consider Athena to be their virgin patron. The Parthenon itself is replaced an older temple in Athena, historians call it the Pre-Parthenon or the Old Parthenon that was destroyed in the Persian invasion of 480 BC.
