A bit of History
Tiled roofs first replaced thatched roofs in ancient Mesopotamia. Debris found at the site contained thousands of terracotta tiles which had fallen from the roof.
The earliest finds of roof tiles in archaic Greece are documented from a very restricted area around Corinth, where fired tiles began to replace thatched roofs at two temples of Apollo and Poseidon between 700 and 650 BC. Spreading rapidly, roof tiles were within fifty years in evidence at a large number of sites around the Eastern Mediterranean, including Mainland Greece, Western Asia Minor, and Southern and Central Italy.
