I love history, especially ancient history, which is why when I saw The Greek and Roman Myths, I had to have it. Many things about the ancient past are so interesting: how did they build their cities; how did they manage to grow as an empire; how did any ancient civilization form in the first place? Was it to bond together to fight off rival empires and those that would gladly rip apart their cities and destroy that which they work so hard to build. This last point I think is the most import, not to mention interesting, especially in a place and time such as today where in our own country the wheels seem to be falling off the cart.
