Ancient history


Astonishing and challenging, the ancient world is the cradle of our civilisation and interest in ancient history has never been greater.

There is so much we can learn from ancient societies, and the rich treasure trove of sources we have from those times allows us to examine life, death, politics, art, music and war in these fascinating periods. Uncover the culture and traditions of the Celts, the mystery and intrigue of the Egyptians, the scientific advances of the philosophical Greeks and the military campaigns of the brutal, yet ingenious, Romans.
