  1. Brickwork

    Brickwork is masonry produced by a bricklayer, using bricks and mortar. Typically, rows of bricks — called courses — are laid on top of one another to build up a structure such as a brick wall. The construction industry frequently makes use of brick as a building medium, and examples of brickwork are found right back through history as far as the Bronze Age. The fired-brick faces of the ziggurat of ancient Dur-Kurigalzu in Iraq date from around 1400 BC, and the brick buildings of ancient Mohenjo-daro in Pakistan were built around 2600 BC. Much older examples of brickwork made with dried bricks may be found in such ancient locations as Jericho in the West Bank, Çatal Hüyük in Anatolia, and Mehrgarh in Pakistan. These structures have survived from the Stone age to the present day.
