Ancient Times

Ancient Times: 5000 B.C. - 400 A.D.
Our studies currently are focused on the Middle Ages and Early Modern eras. This page is likely to be a little sparse for awhile, as my work is focused on the lists farther forward in time. HOWEVER: If you have a favorite or two that you want to ensure I don't miss, give me the info in the comments and I'll add them!
