Nikaia Antipolis

August 18, 2011

Josh at TBB found this great diorama of an ancient Spartan temple complex built by Dan76. The statue is cool but my favorite part is definitely the theater. Take some time to see the full gallery and admire more closely all the details.

Atlantis before the Fall

September 26, 2010

“Atlantis before the Fall” is a brilliant entry for the Mini Castle Contest VI at Classic Castle submitted by Rod Gillies (aka 2 Much Caffeine). The use of binoculars to build the stone columns of the temples was a brilliant idea. Great work!

Tower of Babel

September 24, 2010

Michal Herbolt built an impressive Tower of Babel according one theory that associate the mythical tower to the Etemenanki structure. He uses small round plates to show the scale of the building compared to the human size.

Here’s a small historical introduction given by Michal:

This tower was described in the Bible, but there was no proof of its existence. Robert Koldewey re-discovered Babylon and ruins of this great ziggurat after 1913. It was built during or after the reign of Chammurapi (1792 – 1750 BC). The ancient builders needed more than 17 millions fired bricks. The height of the tower was 91 m. The year 331 BC was the last for the tower. It was demolished, but never re-build.

Abandoned Museum

September 3, 2010

A few weeks ago HistoryBricks presented the museum built by Marcos Bessa, today, I’ll present another wonderful museum built by SlyOwl but this time, the museum was sadly abandoned.

The modular building shows great details such as the broken window, the hobo asking for charity and the cool exhibition in the interior.

The house of history

July 26, 2010

Marcos Bessa, another great Portuguese builder, presents this incredibly Museum with one of the most beautiful staircase I’ve seen lately.

I know that the construction isn’t directly related with human history, but stills represents one of the most important places we can visit to find information about it :)
