Exploring the Ancient World


Course Introduction

Welcome to the course! As you read in the course description/syllabus we will be covering the time period from ancient Mesopotamia to the end of the western Roman Empire. Here is an outline of the units in this course:

Unit 1: Mesopotamia and Egypt

Unit 2: The Greeks

Unit 3: Greek Civilization

Unit 4: The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire

These civilizations spanned thousands of years and led to innovations in literature, architecture, art, philosophy, politics, and religion that influence the western world to this day.

Please watch the video that opens this unit. Dr. Josh McMullen, Assistant Professor of History at Regent University, will introduce you to the course and all that you will learn and study.

Remember to take notes and study the materials carefully; this is a fascinating period in human history.
