The unique culture was quickly buried beneath successive layers of Greek, Roman and Arabic tradition, and all knowledge of Egypt's glorious past was lost. Only the crumbling stone monuments, their pictorial texts now unreadable, survived as silent witnesses to a long lost civilisation. Some 2,000 years on, however, the ancient hieroglyphs have been decoded and Egyptology - the study of ancient Egypt - is successful . At a time when Latin and ancient Greek are rapidly vanishing from the school curriculum, more and more people are choosing to read hieroglyphs in their spare time.
Most of the ancient Egyptian buildings have disappeared leaving no footprint. Built of sun baked bricks made of Nile mud and straw, houses, palaces and city walls crumbled when they stopped being looked after. Stone structures like temples and tombs fared better, but even they fell victim to the ravages of time, the hunger of men, to earthquakes and decline. One shouldn't be surprised by what has disappeared but by how much is left.
Egyptian architecture and painters tried to express the relation and creators. They have seen godly order in nature and perfection. They inscribed scenes of gods and humans in architecture in chronological order. The Nile river was guarantee of life and stability which is expressed in all historical records of Egypt.
According to Joshua J.Mark article 6 periods in the history of ancient Egypt. Dynastic period of Ancient Egyptian history starts 6000 BCE. Next period is Ptolemaic Dynasty period. Early Dynastic period. Old Kingdom period and Amun Ra (the last pharaons) period.
Early humans thought that shelter should be in caves. Canvas were winter shelter. They would keep them safe in the caves. Affront with the need for a shelter against sun or rain, the natural instinct is to lean some form of protective shield against a support - a leafy branch. For example, against the trunk of a tree.
The word precivilization is defined as "the period before history was written down, prior to any kind of written explanation of culture and civilization."The earliest tools were made out of stone and then people discovered bronze and iron metal tools. The most famous caves were -"the Lascaux Caves" – are in southwestern France. Buildings were constructed markers of human dominance over nature.
The materials they used to build there bullies were stone and wood. They used fire on paved hearthes. Every house they built was used to live in and for no other purpose. The most common places to live were sea caves. It was naturally made without no human touching it. The spaces were actually big enough to fit a a human.
The Paleolithic Period has traditionally concurred with the first evidence of tool construction. And use by Homo some 2.5 million years ago. Near the beginning of the Pleistocene Epoch. (About 2.6 million to 11,700 years ago).
