At the dawn of the electrical age, power plants were more than just utilitarian buildings. They were grand, soaring temples to a near-magical substance that was changing the world. Most of these buildings are now abandoned or demolished.

Scythians were nomadic herders of the steppes north of the Black Sea. Their origin, just like their mother tongue, is essentially unknown. They were among the first nomads riding domesticated horses, which gave them tremendous mobility and power. From the seventh century B.

The tabernacle would be in the center of the camp, and the 12 tribes of Israel would set up their tents around it according to tribe. by tiffany

Longhouses were built by the Eastern Woodland Indians. Many families lived together in one longhouse. Each was assigned their own section. Fireplaces and fire pits ran down the middle of the longhouse for heat and for people to share as a place to cook food.  Longhouses were measured by camp fires. A longhouse might be referred to as 10 fires long, or perhaps as 12 fires long. They could be over 200 feet long, 25 feet wide, and 25 feet high. by proteamundi
