|Description:||Democracy began in Greece. The Roman Empire rose and fell. There were extraordinary achievements in art, literature, and philosophy in both Greece and Rome.

Ancient history is surprisingly pervasive in today's cultures, religions, movies, literature, politics, journalism, and advertising.
