Hi Class,A fundamental tool of being a savvy historian is knowing the geographical locations (The Fertile Crescent, The Nile Valley) of ancient peoples (Mesopotamians, The Egyptians). Why is it important? Each time you familiarise yourself with a location and its peoples you start to build an internal map of the ancient world.
This site provides you with a number of important locations and there peoples of the Ancient World. Click on a link for a interactive tour of each location. The tours are brief, however, the content is ideal for building a strong knowledge base.
If you wish to take notes or simply take your time you can control the progress of your journey by using the gold chapter arrow at the top right. Remember the tours are purposely brief and the exercise focuses on familiarising yourself with the ancient world so view as many locations and peoples as you can!Mr McDonald
