The Latin term antiquĭtas he arrived in Spanish as antiquity . He concept make reference to the condition or property of old : that took place in a past and distant time or that belongs to him.
The notion can be used to name that weather preterite . For example: “In ancient times, people used to gather around the radio to hear the story of the most important sporting events”, "Those things happened in ancient times, now it's different", "I don't understand how in ancient times they could live without phones or the Internet".
The history called Old age at the time when the first civilizations arose and developed. Conventionally, the invention of writing is often used as a reference point to study the beginning of ancient history.
It is known by the name of classical antiquity to the Greco-Roman period belonging to the Ancient Age, which lasted a long time and is located between high and low antiquity. More specifically, it is the time when ancient Rome and ancient Greece carried out the development of the civilization Greco-Roman, also known as the greco-roman world.
The objects whose value lies in the passage of time are also called antiques: “Every Sunday an antiques fair is organized in the center square”, “For my birthday, my mother gave me a beautiful Chinese antiquity that I have located in my living room”, "I have several antiques to sell".
The importance of this type of antiques lies in the fact that these are elements that characterize a past period and that are no longer used today. The typewriters they can be considered as antiques because the computers (computers) have replaced them.
It is difficult to describe the sensations that an antiquity can arouse in the people most sensitive to the passage of time and the development of culture . An object created centuries ago, or even decades ago, can mean an incomparable finding for a researcher to the point of changing his life. However, the same can be absolutely useless in the eyes of another individual.
The value of an antiquity is, therefore, relative to the observer. In the field of academic music, for example, there are those who devote much of their time to the search for works that have remained in the I forget . Every time they cross a century-old score that has been in the dark for centuries, they live unsurpassed joy; For a person who does not know how to read music, this may be nothing more than a foreign book that they will never read and that they might sell for some coins in a flea market.
The number of months or years that one person Carried in a job or position is also known as seniority: “I was twenty-five years old at the company when I was kicked out for a restructuring”, “When you turn one year old, you can choose which shift you prefer to work on”, "I don't think it's healthy for a mayor to have more than a decade in office".
In the same way that objects called antiques usually have an incalculable value for certain people, the longer we remain in a position of job more important we become for the employer. Seniority in a company is a determining variable in issues such as salary, vacations and special permits.
It should be noted that seniority in a job can become an obstacle if the employee begins to demand certain privileges that the company is not willing to give, either for not considering them reasonable or for not having the necessary resources. In these cases, it is not uncommon for the situation to end in a dismissal for unclear reasons, as a result of a silent plot by the employer to get the worker to make an unforgivable mistake.
