Babylon&Assyria- Civilizations of Ancient Mesopotamia : Mar 21, 2013
Personally, i think Ancient Near Eastern History (Ancient Egypt, Persia, Mesopotamia, etc…) is more interesting to me than Greek&Roman history..
I’ve really enjoyed studying the ancient civilizations of Iraq, especially those of Assyria and Babylon. The long-lasting effects of these civilizations cannot be doubted… they have undoubtedly even affected the Western empires of Greece and Rome.
The last words of Hannibal the Great : Dec 29, 2012
“It is now time to end the anxiety of the Romans. Clearly they are no longer able to wait for the death of an old man who has caused them so much concern.” – Hannibal before committing suicide in 183 BCE, in the ancient port of Libyssa, modern-day Dileskelisi in Northwestern Turkey. He preferred killing himself to being captured by his enemies, the Romans.
