Ancient Civilizations Series


Our modern world with its conveniences and technology can at times blind us to the great accomplishments of the ancient world. While technological advancement may seem to be the hallmark of modern society, many of the conveniences we enjoy in the present are iterations of precedents set by ancient peoples. From the philosophers of ancient Greece to the Mayan astronomers of Meso-America, our experience of the world around us owes a great deal to the efforts and accomplishments of its earliest cultures. Accompanied by stunning images, these engaging volumes capture the dramatic ascension and decline of some of the most sophisticated empires and civilizations in recorded history.
