  4. 4. Egyptian StructuresAncient Egyptian buildings were very elaborate andmagnificent, and but sometimes they were not very effective.Many Egyptian homes were made of mud brick and stones,because wood in a desert was very rare. Lots of Egyptian villagesand towns have been flooded or buried, and much of ourknowledge comes from the largest religious monuments. Someof the most well known structures are the famous Pyramids ofGiza, towering structures that have left there mark by being thelast surviving wonder of the ancient world. Another famousEgyptian structure is the Sphinx, a half man half lion guarding thePyramid of Khafre.

They imported special materialsfrom different places like Lebanon, India, and Arabia.Mesopotamia made an amazing city with many things in it, withthe name Uruk. It had significant impacts on most of Asia, too.Famous structures of the Mesopotamians are their temples, orziggurats. Ziggurats were monuments to religions all overMesopotamia, and are pyramidal in shape. We have discovered32 ziggurats in all, with 4 of them in the country of Iran and 28 inthe country of Iraq.

They are shapedwith the roof somewhat alike to the hull of a Viking boat, andcould fit numbers of people ranging from 30 to 50. Usually, thesehomes contained the family and their slaves, and in some casesanimals in a room. There are many types of homes, as Vikings,being explorers and raiders, had to adapt to differentsurroundings. When building, Vikings would use whateveravailable, but they would mostly use oak wood.
