Hearing about MUD Bricks I am sure you don’t think of something that will last a long time. But as this wall of Mud Bricks in the Temple Complex of Karnak in Luxor tells us, they do. We don’t know exactly how old this wall is but it probably dates back to the 18th Dynasty (1550 B.C.)
Mud Bricks are made of clay, mud, sand, water and to hold it all together straw was mixed in – baking them in the sun for 25 days did the rest. I wonder if the bricks we make today will last for thousands of years?
