You may only think of sand when you’re at the beach and it is beneath your feet or when it gets stuck in your bathing suit after a dip in the sea. However, sand has been here longer than we have and will be here long after we are gone. Humankind has always made effective use of this abundant resource – especially when building our cities, homes and societies.
