     We begin our story with ancient Mankind. The historians used various methods to "unearth" the first settlements. How man had to adapt to his environment, make weapons for defense against wild creatures and others who wanted to take what others had. The Neolithic age and the first communities change  from the cave dwellers who roamed from place to place following their food source.The Fertile Crescent of Mesopotamia  establishes a political structure  and security that allows for advances in technology  and the arts & sciences.

Our study continues with Ancient Greece and the lasting influences it has had upon all the world's civilization: from forms of Government to the arts including architecture, theater,literature and poetry and of course the Olympics. We have studied Israel and India and now China, we go onto Rome and the beginning of Christianity.
