Visit to Tower of Babel

I visited the Tower of Babel today. Don't understand why ancient Babylonians on the plain of Shinar would be dressed like royalty from the middle ages. I guess it is a symptom of globalization. At least they don't have a Starbucks there yet.

For more info, I suggest reading Ted Chiang's award-winning short story "Tower of Babylon", which depicts the events that might have occurred if the Tower of Babel project had been completed.
