Summers are here, and there is one common thing which we all do love at this time is ice. Whether you want to put some of it in your drink or maybe you just want to rub it all over your body, ice is the best thing in summer. And from where do we get ice? Of course from the refrigerator.
Well, have you ever wondered how ancient people used to make ice before the invention of the refrigerator? I'm not talking about 19th or 20th century; I'm talking about earlier than 1000 B.C.
Greeks, Romans, Egyptians and Indians developed their methods to freeze ice in ancient times, and these methods were quite impressive. Can't believe? Then, have a look at it by your own.
Their slaves used to moisten the outside of the jars, and the resulting evaporation would cool the water below freezing point.
