Ancient History: The Dawn of Civilisation

A guide to ancient history and our resources

Simon Brown, published 23rd November 2015

What is Ancient History?

In this section we cover the period of time from pre-history to 400 AD. The range includes podcasts, articles and publications by academics and specialists from across the UK and the world. There is something to satisfy everyone, from those new to the subject to those wanting to dig a little deeper. Coverage here can lead you into an exploration of belief systems, from the pagan world of early Britain and Ireland to the moral and religious life of ancient Greece and Rome on to a thoughtful exploration of early Christianity and the life of St. Augustine of Hippo. Or take you on a journey to discover more about women and gender in Ancient Greece or early civilisation in the Indus Valley.

All of our sections are constantly being updated and added to. If you think that there is a specific area or subject that needs addressing and can suggest an expert for us to contact (ideally in the UK if it is for a podcast) then please do so by emailing info@history.org.uk
