Archaeology, Ceramic Tile, And Your Floor

ceramic tileIf you are interested in ancient history, you have probably seen pictures of archaeological finds all over the world; many of those finds have included ceramic tile. The Ishtar Gate in Babylon, for instance, was put up around 575 B.C. and the blue glazed brick-style tiles still glowed when they were uncovered again.  Ruins in Babylon, Greece, and Egypt all have held walls and floors of ceramic tile.

The ancient world’s use of ceramics is widespread, but why has this use continued throughout time to today? Simply put, it is because ceramic tile has characteristics that are desirable. It’s easy to make from clay into a format that is easy to install and results in a surface that is easy to maintain.

Even the most primitive of tiles offered durability as proven by the way they hold up for centuries. But the addition of decorations and glazes make tile more than an impervious surface — the versatility of tile found in ancient ruins has an appeal that lasts to this day.
