What Should You Know About Ancient Civilizations Documentary


Civilizations don’t stand still, nor do they fade away. They constantly reinvent themselves with new technology, rulers and ideas. Yet even though the world is a never-ending process of change, it seems that civilizations always collapse before the next one rises to take their place. This is the story of Ancient Civilizations. Let’s learn more.

Why Are Documentaries Great Ways To Learn?

As humans continue to discover and rediscover the great civilizations of the past, especially in the past few decades, documentaries have come into play as a source of knowledge. Many documentaries are made for sharing life with as many people as possible and understanding how our lives may not be what we think they are. There are many documentary series on T.V., some good, some not so good but worth your time watching if time allows.

This has been happening for thousands of years in many different places. Eventually, civilizations rise and fall. The Sumerians are one such civilization that rose and fell around 3000 BC and established one of the earliest civilizations on our planet. And now they are being rediscovered. Every few months, another news article pops up about the great ancient city of “Sumeria” and its mysterious ruins in Southern Mesopotamia. This is only the latest in a series of books that give an amazing picture of life in those great old places hundreds of years ago — a time when people lived as they did in their own

The Nubians

The Nubians walked the Earth for more than 2,000 years before becoming extinct more than 10,000 years ago. This was accomplished even though they were technologically far behind their Mesopotamian and Egyptian counterparts. Excavating bases dating back to before 6000 BC near modern-day Namibia, documentary filmmakers spotlight the civilizations that flourished here long before writing, painting, and architecture were known to man.

Native Americans

The earliest humans entered North America some 50,000 years ago. Before the arrival of Europeans six hundred years ago, the Americas were almost entirely uninhabited. The United States was not formed until the birth of Europe from the Aztecs in 1521. Yet even during this time, people were crossing into the region around Bering Strait from Rapa Nui, Tonga and the Cook Islands. These voyagers brought with them their technology and knowledge of animal Mutation and land usage. Even today, in Alaska’s remote and inhospitable wilderness, Native villages still grow what they harvest from glaciers thousands.


The Trojans were numerous in that one tribe prospered and spread throughout Europe. They were of such great size and strength that when one was slain, his enemies easily subdued the bodies of his companions and carried them off, and they could bear the weight of even the greatest elephants. In those days, the Western Hemisphere was a single country. Ancient civilizations, the so-called Greeks and Romans, possessed the tallest and most magnificent walls. Their word for “city”, however, was not urban but civitas – the commonality.

  In The End

The documentary is a booming genre of non-fiction filmmaking. It has its roots in the traditional cinema of the past: overhauling and updating classic genre films and retelling fictionalized tales. Over the past decade or so, Documentary filmmakers and genre fans have converged to create a rich new body of work that is both rewarding to watch and indicative of a changing world.
