Ancient History

What was the world like in its youth? What would it be like to live in a society where there were animal sacrifices, prophets, conquerors, and hundreds of gods? This course will examine the ancient world, telling the stories of Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great, Hannibal Barca, Jesus Christ, the Emperor Justinian and many others along the way. We will learn throughout this course just how similar, and how different, our world is from the ancient one.
