Masonry: The First 10,000 Years


This 88-slide PowerPoint presentation on the history of masonry was originally prepared as the first two lectures of a semester-long course in masonry engineering at the University of Texas at Austin. It was intended to give students an appreciation for the background of masonry construction.
