A Fact About Ancient Sites–The Power of Community and Common Purpose

Much has been written and said about the ancient sites that confound us today with their mysteries about their origins, purposes, and the techniques used to build them.

But one essential fact needs to be thought about–these sites were built with a lot of cooperation from what had to be population centers of significant size and united behind a common goal.

The Pyramids once were said to have been built with slave labor.  Until recently, that seems to have been disproved and that there were actually commissioned craftsmen who built them.

Stonehenge in England took a lot of work to be built; just dragging the stones several hundred miles, let alone hoisting them into place.  So did Gobekli Tepe in Turkey and then there was the Great Wall of China.  Don’t forget about the pyramids in South America, the temples throughout Cambodia, Thailand and India, and the incredible mounds located in the United States such as Poverty Point and the Monk’s Mounds, at Cahokia, in Illinois.

The point is, each of these places took the cooperation, coordination and the combined labor of thousands of people–their local communities, with people giving up their time and effort in this thing we call life to build something bigger than themselves, that ultimately, has stood the test of time.

The question for discussion here is do we, in 2012, hold a candle to their levels of determination, grit and desire to see a project to completion?

We’ve been working on our photo collection of Wonders sites around the world and finally have launched a Pinterest page we are excited to share with you.

Already people are beginning to pin some of the curious points we’ve included, and literally, we are just get started.

But we can’t help but noticing the way that all these photos combined on one long scrolling screen just further points out the incredible similarities we’re trying to emphasize via The Wonders Expedition.  And to us, that makes what’s happening with Pinterest, pretty cool and amazing.

Do you have photos you’d like to add to our collection?  Send us the links and we’ll be happy to add them if they’re in the scope of TWE.
