I am seriously amazed with this particular statement "A hooked instrument is used to pull the brain out of the head through your nose." This is scary!

The ancient Mayans lived where it is now Southern Mexico Guatemala. The Mayans were powerful. In a way the Mayans were advanced. They had a class system and believed in different gods. Their disaperance is a mystery. To this day we do not know why did the Mayans leave their city. Their territory was just abandoned.

Pompeii is one of the most famous cities in the world due to its tragic fiery end. People were literally frozen in their footsteps encrusted in a molten shell.

It's sad to know how gladiators are not given second chance. 

elizama ramirez's curator insight, February 25, 2014 5:49 PM

Romans treated the barbarians badly and did not like them. In fact they are called barbarians because that is what the Romans named them. Becoming a gladiator was not a choice. The Romans would capture these people and then sale them, once bought the owner decided what they wanted them for and some would send them in trauning and to fight. You lose, you die!

It’s fascinating to know Ancient China’s history. I never knew that it took 2,000 years to build Great Wall.

Ancient Civilization has shaped us to who we are today. Some concepts are to know strategies of agriculture, art, religion, economic system, literacy, and a organized government.

Culture is a big thing in ancient civilization because different area had different tradition.

Lachlan McDonald's curator insight, April 6, 2014 10:36 PM

 

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!
