Natural stone and formation of societies

History of Natural Stone and Formation of Societies | Marble Slab

Stone has played a fundamental role when it comes to building the foundation of different societies. The Egyptians used limestone and granite to create resting places for their departed pharaohs. China was able to build the famous Great Wall of China using natural stone. The Romans constructed the Colosseum using travertine. From the pyramids to the Colosseum, natural stone is everywhere you look throughout history. Today, these natural stones are still used in architecture such as the limestone fortified pillars on the White House in Washington, DC and the marble slab on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
