Quality issues have been of great concern throughout the recorded history of human beings. During the New Stone Age, several civilizations emerged, and some 4000-5000 ago, considerable skills in construction had been acquired. The pyramids in Egypt were built approximately during 2589-2566 BC. The king of Babylonia (1792-1750 BCE) had codified the law, and according to which, during the Mesopotamian era, builders were responsible for maintaining the quality of buildings and were given the death penalty if any of their constructed buildings collapsed and its occupants were killed. Records exist to show that the extension of Greek settlements around the Mediterranean after 200 BCE featured temples and theatres were built using marble. India had strict standards for working in gold in the fourth century BCE.
