2006 Summer Program

To grow a clan to a village, a village to a town, people must master farming. To master farming they need water. To move water they need to work together. Construct an Aztec chinampa (floating farm), an Egyptian inundation field and shaduf, a Chinese rice terrace and canal, a Persian windmill and qanat. Then construct sandbox pyramids and temples these civilisations produced.
