Unit 1

10,000 BCE – 600 CE

This unit is based on a set of dates that is recognized by most World History teachers as the time between early man and about 600 C.E. (Current Era). The point of the break is one in which many of the most influential civilizations around the world fell or had recently fallen, which gives us as much of a breaking point as one gets in world history. Between these dates are a wealth of civilizations that are important to world history but are largely forgotten by most of America. For every well-know civilization like Egypt, we cover many lesser known (but important) civilizations like the Phoenicians.
