During the sixth century, the eastern side of the agora underwent reconstruction and a succession of meeting rooms were built within the colonnade.
Residences of the wealthy inhabitants of the city lined the streets originally laid down by Alexander and his heirs, and while the houses of the earlier Ptolemaic period are hardly accessible, the later ones, with wall paintings and fine mosaic floors have been preserved, and, as in the "Villa of the Birds", restored.
This housing was destroyed at the end of the third century and replaced by public buildings, the baths, the theatre, and the lecture rooms.

 Typology of Ancient Egyptian Christian Churches
From the middle of the fifth century this type of church was gradually replaced by more traditional basilica designs with a nave and two aisles.
It was characterized by an impressive, wide nave, and in the interior of Egypt, the architects often retained a small western return aisle, which connected the side aisles and gave access to the two galleries on the upper story.
During the seventh century, the addition of the khurus (choir) was an evolutionary development to the traditional basilican plan.

The conventional interpretation of the archaeology and history of the areas which were in British hands during the 5th and 6th centuries has it that political control rapidly devolved to local warlords, and a `Celtic' society soon emerged.
Fifth and 6th century written sources and inscriptions hint at the survival of Roman-style bureaucratic administration, Roman law, Roman weights and measures, and schooling on the Roman model to train future administrators and judges.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Dionysius the Pseudo-Areopagite
Both in spirit and tendency the Areopagitica correspond fully to the sense of the Henoticon; and one might easily infer that they were made to further the purpose of the Henoticon.
The oppressions on the part of Islam during the sixth and seventh centuries compelled many Greek and Oriental monks to abandon their homes and settle in italy.
Through the latter the false idea that the Gallic martyr Dionysius of the third century, whose relics were preserved in the monastery of Saint-Denys, was identical with the Areopagite rose to an undoubted certainty, while the works ascribed to Dionysius gained in repute.

During Constantine's reign, Christianity was declared the official religion of the empire (324 CE), and Jerusalem --which at the end of the Roman era was mainly a housing facility for soldiers of the Roman legion -- became a prosperous city.
From this later viewpoint, the Cardo was built only in the 6th century, by the Emperor Justinian, to connect the religious center of the city (The Church of the Holy Sepulcher), with the new church built in the southern part of the city, the Nea Church.
From written historical sources researchers know that this wall was built by the Empress Eudocia in the 5th century; the Nea Church, which appears on the map, was built in the 6th century by Justinian, thereby supporting the claim that the map is no older than the middle of the 6th century.

In China, the widespread use of iron emerged in the 6th century BC.
With the exception of China, virtually all of the iron produced before the 14th century was what we know as wrought iron.
It requires more sophisticated and hotter furnaces to produce than wrought iron, and although the Chinese developed such furnaces from the 6th century BC onwards, the technology did not reach Europe until very much later.
