I have been watching the History channel again, with our new technologies we are discovering more and more things that we humans have done in the past. I just watched one where the Romans over 2000 years ago destroyed a mountain range with water in search of gold. This was in Spain. They used water pressure for this was a tremendous undertaking. Our new techo gadgets allow us to examine the areas so closely that we now know how they did it. Are you impressed on how inventive our ancestors were?

Yes I'm impressed on our ancestors achievements.We have come to this stage of life by the continuous effort of our predecessors. But at the same time if we look into deep we will find that destroying of environmental balance began from the very early stage of civilization.

Hi Savypat, It fascinates me the way that these people done things. I simple adore watching Time Team where they do digs and then reconstruct how the people in the dwellings discovered lived and why a settlement was positioned where it was, my five year old loves to watch too. An excellent way of teaching him history also. Huggles. Ellie :D

I love history and I love reading about archeological finds, too. It is truly amazing how innovative and intelligent our ancestors were, yes! Many things have been in existence that not everyone knows about. This was interesting, and thank you for sharing it. Karen

Hi savypat, Yes, I'm always impressed when I see how inventive our ancestors were, but I also wonder how much they did that we haven't discovered yet. With changes happening almost daily now no one can keep up, who knows what we'll learn about our ancestors tomorrow? Blessings.
