Science in Ancient Civilizations?
This unique event aims to promote interactions, to motivate discussions and to encourage collaborations among the global community on water resources in the past, present and future. Information about ancient technologies of water and sanitation in various civilizations, which enhance sustainable practices and water management, are crucial to develop present and future technologies. This Symposium will bring together research scientists, historians, archaeologists, and engineers from academic and research institutions, consulting firms and industries around the world. Major achievements in related scientific fields of water and sanitation technologies and management throughout the millennia will be presented. In addition, it will provide valuable insights into those technologies with their apparent characteristics of durability, adaptability to the environment, and sustainability.

A civilization is a complex human society , usually made up of different cities, with certain characteristics of cultural and technological development. In many parts of the world, early civilizations formed when people began coming together in urban settlements.

Why did the Greeks excel in geometry, but lag begin the Mesopotamians in arithmetic? How were the great pyramids of Egypt and the Han tombs in China constructed? What did the complex system of canals and dykes in the Tigris and Euphrates river valley have to do with the deforestation of Lebanon's famed cedar forests? This work presents a cross-cultural comparison of the ways in which the ancients learned about and preserved their knowledge of the natural world, and the ways in which they developed technologies that enabled them to adapt to and shape their surroundings. Covering the major ancient civilizations - those of Mesopotamia, Egypt, China, Greece, the Indus Valley, and Meso-America - Olson explores how language and numbering systems influenced the social structure, how seemingly beneficial construction projects affected a civilization's rise or decline, how religion and magic shaped both medicine and agriculture, and how trade and the resulting cultural interactions transformed the making of both everyday household items and items intended as art. Along the way, Olson delves into how scientific knowledge and its technological applications changed the daily lives of the ancients. Richard G.

Introduction History of Technology
Don't have an account? Even though there was no equivalent to modern laboratory-based science in ancient societies, ancient investigators had analogous ambitions to those of today's scientists, so there is no need, on this score, to postulate a radical great divide between the ancient and the modern world. Ancient investigators sought to understand, explain, and predict natural phenomena, for example, in relation to what we call 'astronomy'.
In ancient times, technology was defined by Homer and Hesiod as the spoken word of manual craft or cunning skill Luna, By BC, Aristotle coined the Greek term technologia and split scientific knowledge into three parts: theoretical science, practical science, and productive science technology. According to Luna , the earliest use of the word technology in the United States was found an a Harvard University course on the "application of the Sciences to the Useful Arts" in The Encyclopedia Americana defined technology as principles, processes, and nomenclatures. Ever since that time, there has been debate as to the definition and identity of technology.
