Now, according to this introduction, join Parshin Sazeh to study a comprehensive and practical article on brick and its types.
A brief history of brick making
Brick is one of the oldest building materials, whose age, according to some archaeologists, reaches ten thousand years ago. The primitive brick kilns were undoubtedly made in places where layers.
of firewood and clay are stacked alternately. It is interesting to know that the remains of pottery and brick kilns in Shush and Silk Kashan date back to the 4th millennium BC.

In the past, people used to mix clay and straw by kicking them to make bricks. Then, the prepared mixture was poured into rectangular molds and placed in the sun to bake.
but the resulting brick could not hold itself without straw. Therefore, the people of Babylon, Assyria and ancient Egypt realized that by melting clay, bricks are obtained which are stronger and more resistant to weather.
Actually, the use of bricks made with clay dates back to about 5000 years ago and apparently it was used for the first time to build cities in Mesopotamia and the Indus Valley in Pakistan.
Therefore, it can be boldly stated that the existence of brick and its construction has a history of several thousand years.
