Ancient Egypt Wings
ANCIENT HISTORY is the aggregate of past events from the beginning of recorded human history and extending as far as the Early Middle Ages or the Postclassical Era . The span of recorded history is roughly 5,000 years, beginning with Sumerian Cuneiform script , the oldest discovered form of coherent writing from the protoliterate period around the 30th century BC. The term classical antiquity is often used to refer to history in the Old World from the beginning of recorded Greek history

in 776 BC (First Olympiad

Protohistory
PROTOHISTORY is a period between prehistory and history , during which a culture or civilization has not yet developed writing but other cultures have already noted its existence in their own writings. For example, in Europe
Europe
, the Celts and the Germanic tribes may be considered to have been protohistoric when they began appearing in Greek and Roman sources. Protohistoric may also refer to the transition period between the advent of literacy in a society and the writings of the first historians . The preservation of oral traditions may complicate matters as these can provide a secondary historical source for even earlier events. Colonial sites involving a literate group and a non-literate group are also studied as protohistoric situations. It can also refer to a period in which fragmentary or external historical documents, not necessarily including a developed writing system, have been found

Roman Historiography
ROMAN HISTORIOGRAPHY is indebted to the Greeks , who invented the form. The Romans had great models to base their works upon, such as Herodotus (c. 484 – 425 BC ) and Thucydides
Thucydides
(c. 460 – c. 395 BC). Roman historiographical forms are different from the Greek ones however, and voice very Roman concerns. Unlike the Greeks, Roman historiography did not start out with an oral historical tradition. The Roman style of history was based on the way that the Annals
Annals
of the Pontifex Maximus , or the Annales Maximi , were recorded. The Annales Maximi include a wide array of information, including religious documents, names of consuls, deaths of priests, and various disasters throughout history. Also part of the Annales Maximi are the White Tablets, or the “Tabulae Albatae,” which consist of information on the origin of the republic

Babylonia
BABYLONIA was an ancient Akkadian -speaking state and cultural area based in central-southern Mesopotamia (present-day Iraq ). A small Amorite -ruled state emerged in 1894 BC, which contained at this time the minor administrative town of Babylon . Babylon greatly expanded from the small provincial town that it had originally been during the Akkadian Empire (2335-2154 BC) during the reign of Hammurabi in the first half of the 18th century BC, becoming a major capital city. During the reign of Hammurabi and afterwards, Babylonia was called _Māt Akkadī_ "the country of Akkad" in the Akkadian language. It was often involved in rivalry with its older fellow Akkadian-speaking state of Assyria in northern Mesopotamia, as well as Elam to the east, in Ancient Iran
