Evidence of the achievements of human cultures over numerous millenia create a sense of awe in all of us. Even in ruinous states they echo with connections to our own pasts. They speak of accomplishment as well as folly. From the perspective of today, the surrender of even the strongest, physical and cultural constructs of times past is evident but, when they held sway in their various corners of Earth, they must have seemed permanent. They could be relied upon. Then they could not. They were gone. Huge changes were wrought. The mighty fell. The people suffered. Even so, remnants remained and recovered.
