comment Comparison of Ancient Greecian and Egyptian schools and methods of studying to modern day
I was thinking about the "major" ones - like Greece, Egypt, Middle ages Europe... the Asian area is also very interesting, but I guess it's inherently different from the western schools.

comment Buying/Renting/Leasing houses during history?
@DVK - I believe that renting was prior to Rome. Even in the exert above there is "rent". The mere addition of "taking possession" of a property is an addition to renting (to make it "leasing"). I would conclude that renting was as early as ancient babylon.

@LennartRegebro - I think that the meaning of lease here is not as rent because of "On the fifth of Tammuz he takes possession". I understand that on that date he receives the property after leasing.

@DVK - you're right. I shall expand to leasing. The idea is similar.

Thanks. Interesting that today mostly it's the opposite - the higher floors are accommodated by wealthy families and the lower by more poor families.

That's awesome! many thanks :) that means we have no "news" here about renting apartments. That's interesting though - so did we have times that we had many (lets say more than 60%) "low class" people who possessed apartments and didn't rent? I'm trying to understand if we have a new situation on our hands in those turbulent times or it's still the same world as the last thousands of years.

Lennart - thanks for the answer. I didn't really mean an actual house - but some kind of living accommodation.
