A community for those of us who love to learn about and discuss life in the ancient world. Ancient in this sense has a fairly specific meaning - it refers to the period from the first human written records until the end of Classical Antiquity. If you're posting about ancient society from roughly 3400 BCE until around 500 CE, anywhere in the world, you are in the right place.
