Why Super-Cements May Hold Secrets of the Pyramid Builders


Cement is quite literally the foundation on which modern civilization is built. It’s mankind’s most common building material, and has been a key component in most of the world’s construction projects for over a century.

Its origins are certainly ancient, and stretch back at least far as the Romans, and probably older still. The Romans may have learned cement-making from the Greeks.

The ancient Egyptians before them may have even mastered the technique for making geopolymers – an advanced type of super-cement.
