ANCIENT MESOPOTAMIAN CHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY in ancient Mesopotamia, these substances were already serving a variety of uses in various technological fields. The difficulties in our identification of the chemicals used by the ancients are enormous. One avenue in attacking the problem is the study of the lexical lists that have survived. The earliest practical knowledge of chemistry was concerned with metallurgy, pottery, and dyes; these crafts were developed with considerable skill, but with no understanding of the principles involved, as early as BC in Egypt and basic ideas of element and compound were first formulated by the Greek philosophers during the period from to BC Opinion varied, but it.

Many of his papers on history of chemistry were published in the Journal of Chemical Education, Isis, and Chymia. In his later years, he un-dertook mostly major textual researches which resulted in books. His principal books are: Chemistry and Chemical Technology in Ancient Mesopotamia (); Medieval Arabic Book-.

In the 5 th century BCE, the first lighthouse was erected by Themistocles at a harbor in Piraeus. The lighthouse was made of stone columns and a blazing fire atop it. About two centuries later, the famous Lighthouse of Alexandria was constructed by Ptolemy II in Alexandria, Egypt.

The history of chemistry included the Ancient Egyptians, who took many of the techniques learned in Mesopotamia and perfected them. Under the Egyptians, most of the alchemical techniques, still very much perceived as an art, rather than science, were the domain of priests.

InLevey provoked a deep discussion on aromatic preparation technologies which involved chemical apparatuses, furnaces, chemical ex­traction techniques, waters, oils, fats, resins, and waxes. Levey was a real precursor to the discussion of Mesopotamian perfumery chemistry.

This is the first systematic attempt to survey in detail the archaeological evidence for the crafts and craftsmanship of the Sumerians, Babylonians, and Assyrians in ancient Mesopotamia, covering the period ca. B.C.E. As creators of some of the earliest farming and urban communities known to us, these people were among the first pioneers of many crafts and skills that remain 3/5(4).

mation about the technology of brewing Sumerian beer they provide is thus often incoherent. § This diffi culty of interpreting the numerous ad-ministrative documents concerning beer brewing has impelled scholars to reconstruct the meaning of the ancient terms by applying modern knowledge about fermentation chemistry and brewing technology.
