That is why we need to know and learn about our history, the history of mankind, the history of our ancestors. Thousands of archaic history are best known for their values and the story behind to it. We can learn infinite of lessons evokes the eyes of the reader at how calamities have brought down every great civilisation.
The remains thrive from the ashes giving birth to the successors of the old. We have witnessed the the ruins of the great civilisation and the incarnation of the same. There are bound to be many more of civilisations that we have yet to discover and learn what they have to tell us.
