Back in time

Did you know stonemasonry is one of the earliest trades in city history?

In Neolithic times, people learned how to use fire to create quicklime, plasters, and mortars. They used these to custom their homes with mud, straw, or stone, and masonry was born.

The Ancients relied on the stonemason to build the most majestic and long-lasting monuments to their civilisations.

The Egyptians built their pyramids; the Central American civilisation had their step pyramids, the Persians their palaces, the Greeks their temples, and the Romans their public works.
