Scissor congruence theory of polytopes is an old subject going back to 19th century. One of its first major achievements was appearance of so-called Dehn invariant. This mysterious invariant could be properly understood and generalized in the context of the theory of mixed Hodge structures of mixed Tate type. I will explain this relation and show some applications to hyperbolic geometry.
