World History: Ancient and Medieval Eras covers early human history around the globe from prehistoric times to the beginnings of the Renaissance. What are the historical origins of the regional conflicts roiling the world today? Was there really a King Arthur, or is he simply a mythical character? How could ancient Egyptians construct pyramids that still confound contemporary builders? This comprehensive database explores these intriguing questions and much more. Ranging from the dawn of prehistory through the great ancient empires to the beginning of the Renaissance, World History: Ancient and Medieval Eras helps students grasp the significance of every area of the world, including Asia, Africa, and the Americas. Thousands of authoritative primary and secondary sources, in-depth explorations of key topics, and profiles of city-states, countries, and regions of the ancient and medieval world provide a dynamic learning experience.
