The Skinny - Or Not So - On Columns : Reading Response 3

This week, the Hersey reading was about columns, and the origins thereof. It was intriguing that they were started as trees - it is wondered if trees weren't even modified at the very beginning, but instead used as they were where they were. Over time, they were cut down and modified to hold up tarp like things, other sticks, etc. That basic shape was then taken and carved out of rock for what we recognize as columns now. They became more decorative over time, and are now used for a little bit of everything.

  1. I can see a theme coming from your RRs. You seem to be heading in the right direction, but remember to look at the rubric and have quotes from the readings, bullet info, and sources for all of your photos. Other than that you have some good info, but what are your opinions? Very good job on the title and concept. Bring that into your RR more.
