Proud of what we accomplish in the progress of science and technology. Maybe we think that solar power, wind, and the other is a sophisticated technology that was found by scientists in modern times. But we certainly do not think that the design of similar technology had already been invented by the ancient civilization.

1. Windmills Design

Windmills of ancient Persia is one of the oldest windmills ever built by humans. The windmill was made by the Persian civilization about 3000 years ago. This windmill used to grind grain and pump water.

Although the mechanism is simple, but the windmills have been known by all other civilizations at that time, and some countries still use this mechanism to in this modern era. In a way, this ancient windmill is the forerunner of modern windmills that are used as wind power.

2. Persian wind tower

Still from the ancient Persian civilization, wind towers or wind tower is used by the people of Persia to the air ventilation system at home - their home. Their ventilation system is much more complicated than the existing ventilation system in our homes.

Ventilation systems that they develop at least 2,000 years ago this might only be rivaled by a ventilation system with modern technology. The principle is to use a combination of air pressure differences, and adjustment of environmental climate in the region of Persia.

3. Roman gravity Waterways(Aqueduct)

The heat generated was then used for various things, such as for hot spring, hydraulic, medical needs, and others. If electricity has been found at that time, perhaps the source of this energy can be utilized more widely.

6. Solar Energy Utilization

Utilization of solar energy has been discovered by the ancient Greek civilization. If we use solar cells as power plants, the ancient Greeks used it as a backup heat during winter.

Solar Energy Utilization

The concept is so simple, they make the building facing toward the sun, and the entire building is designed like that to capture as much sunlight - much in the daytime because the sun is lower than their roof.

When in the evening, the entire Roman civilization a step further by adding glass to absorb the sun's heat to maximum. It turned out that the utilization of solar energy has been there for a long time yes.

7. Cliff Palace

A place called Cliff Palace is located in Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado. This unique building was built by North American society in the ancient times. This unique construction design has a purpose as the cooling of the hot sun at the time.

       We can not underestimate just buildings the ancient times. Sometimes, with modern technology, though, may not necessarily result in similar buildings with similar functions as well. Ancient architecture was remarkable, indicating that the achievement of science in those days quite advanced.
