My summer starts in 2 weeks. I’m a history major and I love ancient history; what are some of your favorite writers / ancient civilizations?posted over 5 years ago
I’m a history major too!
I am big on wars like thermopylae and Wars of beginning Greece.
Stuff about Persians is fun too!
one of my favorite sources: http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/ancient/asbook.html
I love epics (greek, mesopotamian, and – but less so – roman..I love Odysseus above all other ancient heroes), orators, and philosophers. I like the “Who is Who in Ancient Greece (or Rome)” books for easy reference.posted over 5 years ago
i have been trying to expand my reading. I am only a Junior this coming Fall but I feel like I am behind in my reading. Maybe I am partying too much. ahahposted over 5 years ago
i love ancient history, too! although thucydides can be a bitch to read/translate on a bad day D:posted over 5 years ago
It is a bitch on a good day. But I made it a point to suffer through. Once I found things like Thucydides and texts on the Punic Wars I left all the literature they talk about in high school behind.posted over 5 years ago
