Summary
  • Greece: Five hundred years before the birth of Christ, the small city-states of Greece began a period of cultural excellence, but none was more advanced than Athens. Under Pericles, the entire city strove for perfection in all things, and lead developments in poetry, dramatic theater, and athletic achievement, as exemplified in the Olympic Games. Discover the architectural, intellectual, and artistic achievements of the period, and the elements that led to the end of this glorious "moment of excellence."
  • China: One of the world's oldest continuous civilizations, China experienced many "dynasties of power" from the 2nd century B.C. through the rise of the first emperor. The achievements of ancient China are illustrated by three dynasties: the Shang (1600 - 1046 BC), the Zhou (1046 - 476 BC), and the Ch'in or Qin (221- 206 BC), under whom China was first unified. While uniting a vast land the Chinese built the 2,600-mile Great Wall, invented paper, printing, the compass, and the world's first system of justice
  • Rome: Originally a village on the Tiber River, the republic of Rome rose to become one of the world's first super power, dominating the known world under their Pax Romana. From Petra to Hadrian's Wall to Gibraltar, peace was kept by the Legions, while technological development was driven by the demands of administering far-flung military outposts. Thanks to the Roman passion for organization, archaeologists have discovered much about life in ancient Rome's spectacular empire
