Brick walls have been in use for several thousands of years; India and other near eastern countries first started building brick walls about 5000 years ago. The ideas behind the way brick walls and bricks are made have changed very little over the years. Even the size of bricks has stayed relatively unchanged.
Bricks designed for the construction of brick walls can also be referred to as compressed earth blocks, or CEBs. As the name implies, bricks are made by compressing a type of earth such as shale or clay. The more a brick is compressed, the more it adds to the durability of the final brick wall. A brick that has been highly compressed will absorb less water and can be used in outdoor applications where the brick wall is exposed to rain and other weather conditions.
