Photo Essay:  Archaeology opportunity in Turkey (Includes first-hand account) | Ancient World History | Scoop.it
Turkey is an archaeologist's dream. Not only does it offer amazing Mesopotamian, Greek, Roman, Byzantium, and Ottoman ruins, it also offers yet un-explored sites for those interested in archaeology.

The Persians wars were a series of battles fought between Ancient Greece and Persia. There are many causes of the Persian wars. One of them was that Persians wanted to rule Greece.

Elizabeth Otis's curator insight, February 27, 2014 6:23 PM

I like how they explain the war and how it started. These were two powerhouses of the old world. 

Andrea Arminguay's curator insight, March 1, 2014 1:10 AM

this is an interesting one because it explains all the persian wars and why they happened. I think the persians and greeks are two ancient cultures that now are somewhat mixed

I enjoyed watching this video because it gave a short detailed video of how Mesopotamia came to be. It mentioned how the Sumerians were the first to establish a written language. In addition it showed how people living there used irrigation to water their crops. It also showed how they built temples for religious reasons.

Land of the tomb raiders: Bulgaria is trying to claw back tens of thousands of ancient artefacts plundered from its historic sites in a £25m-a-year export racket

Land of the tomb raiders: Bulgaria is trying to claw back tens of thousands of ancient artefacts plundered from its historic sites in a £25m-a-year export racket | Ancient World History | Scoop.it
Real-life vampires, giant rock vaginas, ancient sites to rival those of Greece and Rome – Bulgaria’s archaeologists are putting their country on the map of world history, but first they have to stop the mafia stealing its treasures.

 

The illegal diggers come at night with shovels and sacks, hunting through the places where they know the professionals have been. They’re looking for the tonnes of ancient artefacts that lie hidden in Bulgaria’s soil.

 

In the past two decades, Bulgarian law enforcement agencies say this plunder has turned into a €30m-a-year industry for local gangs, putting it a close third behind drugs and prostitution. The artefacts – gold Roman coins, ancient Greek silver, Thracian military helmets – wind up with falsified documents in auction houses in Europe and North America, or increasingly with wealthy Arab and Asian collectors.

 

Police say there are 300 criminal treasure-hunting gangs in Bulgaria at present, but as many as 50,000 people are thought to be involved in illegal digging in some form. Entire villages have been known to take part in some impoverished corners of Bulgaria.
