In an ancient settlement in Turkey dating back to 6500 BC, the houses had no front doors.
Instead, people propped up ladders against their mud-brick houses and entered them from a hole in the roof. In other societies, people had to rely on heavy rocks and giant slabs of wood or stone to keep them safe from weather and intruders—meaning anyone too weak to move the makeshift heavy door was vulnerable. By at least 1600 BC, people were using an early form of the modern hinge to make massive objects more moveable, based on discoveries at Hattusa, an ancient Near Eastern capital.
And after your front door swings closed behind you, you might pop open a 600-lb garage door, thanks to mighty power of T-hinges.
