Ancient Worlds is a fascinating voyage of discovery through the birth of nations and nationhood, from the development of religion and first uses and abuses of power and inheritance, to the delicate balance between the rule of law and the freedoms of society. Archaeologist and historian Richard Miles is at the helm to tell the central story of what he argues is mankind's greatest achievement - civilisation. The Middle East, Egypt, the Russian Caucasus and the Mediterranean all feature alongside interviews with eminent historians, local experts and archaeologists. Kings, warriors, merchants and philosophers are brought back to life, showing how the successes and failures of the ancients shaped the world that we have inherited.
