  1. 1. STRUCTURE/HOUSING IN DIFFERENT CULTURES BY: ROBERT
  2. 2. HOUSES IN MESOPOTAMIA In Mesopotamia, everyone had a house. The rich house’s were wider than poor’s. They were at least 3 stories high. The 1st floor was the entryway and courtyard. Meals were sometimes cooked here and children played here. The next 2 floors were where the family lived, there was sleeping rooms as well as storage rooms. The roof was flat and some people considered the roof as a floor. The roof was where people usually cook and eat.
  3. 3. MESOPOTAMIA #2 Houses were built out of sandstone blocks or mud bricks. The Poor people usually had to walls share walls, and the opposite with rich families. Houses were built around the ziggurat (like a temple) section so they could give offerings to the god.
  4. 4. HOUSES IN ANCIENT EGYPT The houses in ancient Egypt were made out of bricks because of its availability. The ancient Egypt's invented molds to make bricks. The bricks were baked in the sun instead of a oven. A few homes were built with stone. But most were built of sun dried brick. Each house had a front and back door. Some were built on top of a ramp to reduce the amount of sand coming inside the house.
  5. 5. HOUSES IN ANCIENT EGYPT The common people had nice house, especially in the country where they had more room to build. Each family had there own home, but some were not as luxuries or big as the nobles. They used ramps instead of stairs. The flat roof was the center of family life. Meals were prepared on the roof. People often slept on mats on their roof tops to catch the evening breeze.
  6. 6. EGYPT HOUSES FOR NOBLES The nobles lived in huge homes along the Nile River. They painted their homes white because it kept their home cooler. Some of these huge homes had as many as 30 rooms. Each room had a purpose. There was guest rooms, and kids rooms, and bathrooms! (No running water, though.) A few homes were built with stone. But most were built of sun dried brick.

  9. 9. GREECE Houses in ancient Greece were built of stone, wood, and clay bricks. They were strong and comfortable. Meals were often eaten in the courtyard.

  10. 10. GREECE #2 Men and women lived in different places. There was a men's dining area and all that stuff. In some houses, there was also a slave’s room. There were work rooms, bedrooms, Gynaikon (place for women's), Andron(place for men), bathroom, kitchen, storage room, and the courtyard
