A Brief Look at the History of Concrete

Concrete remains one of the most popular construction materials in the world, which is even more impressive when you consider that concrete has been around for thousands of years. The Egyptians used cement-like materials 5,000 years ago to hold bamboo together in their boats and in the construction of the Great Wall. The next great chapter in the history of cement came in 1824, when an English bricklayer and mason named Joseph Aspdin Concrete San Franciscopatented Portland cement. U.S. demand for cement occurred shortly after, and the first recorded shipment of Portland cement to America took place in 1868. Throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries, concrete construction boomed in the United States.
