Rome. Ancient Rome is indeed an intriguing subject of history. The Roman Empire maintained European hegemony for half a millennium; it had legendary rulers like Augustus who as they say “found Rome a city of bricks and left it a city of marble.” This eBook relates the history of Ancient Rome from its dawn to dusk: The Roman Kingdom, the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire. The tumultuous wars, the celebrated rulers, the factors that occasioned the fall of Rome—every prominent event of this epoch is discussed thoroughly.
Greece. The foundation of democracy, the genesis of the Olympic Games, the cradle of Western thinking; the inspiration of the Renaissance—the world owes Ancient Greece a lot more than one might think. Home to humanities greatest philosophers like Socrates, Aristotle and Plato, this era is enriched with a wealth of fascinating events. Spanning over a period of seven centuries and reigning over large territories stretching as far as Southwest Asia and the entire Mediterranean, the kingdoms of Greece were able to imbue half the world with their beautiful culture, art, literature and innovative thinking.
Egypt. Beginning from its unification in the 3rd millennium BC and ending in its annexation by the Roman Empire in 30 BC, Ancient Egypt had spanned for nearly 30 centuries, leaving behind a wealth of relics that continue to entrance the modern world. From the great pyramids of the Old Kingdom to the hypnotic tomb of Tutankhamen, Ancient Egypt is a topic of intrigue that has earned universal prominence. In fact, its unending stream of allure has established a study of its own: Egyptology.
