    Ancient History

    Ancient history is the compilation of past events from the beginning of recorded human history to the Early Middle Ages. Historians who study this span of roughly 5,000 years are concerned with the societies, cultures, politics, and intellectual worlds of old civilizations, especially Greece and Rome.

Degree programs in the field, therefore, exist at the intersection of ancient languages, philosophy, religion, war, revolution, archaeology, anthropology, and art.
