From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary [easton]:
   Bricks
      the making of, formed the chief labour of the Israelites in
      Egypt (Ex. 1:13, 14). Those found among the ruins of Babylon and
      Nineveh are about a foot square and four inches thick. They were
      usually dried in the sun, though also sometimes in kilns (2 Sam.
      12:31; Jer. 43:9; Nah. 3:14). (See {NEBUCHADNEZZAR}.)
     
         The bricks used in the tower of Babel were burnt bricks,
      cemented in the building by bitumen (Gen. 11:3).
