The Mastery and Uses of Fire in Antiquity

by

The material fabric of nearly all settled civilizations exists largely because of pyrotechnology - the generation, control, and application of the heat from fire to change the properties of materials. The technological achievements that make contemporary society possible, for instance, are the result of some ten thousand years of development of the intentional use of fire for other than warmth and food.
