A Brief History

Today, July 24, 2021, we celebrate Ancient History Day!

Digging Deeper

This playlist organized by Digital Hammurabi presents a collaborative project to bring hours of new historical content to YouTube!.

The preceding videos have covered just some aspects of Ancient History.  It is our hope that by watching these videos, you will feel motivated to learn more!  Question for students (and subscribers): Which video in the playlist did you find to be the most interesting?  Please let us know in the comments section below this article.

As part of the YouTube Ancient History Day, a survey is also available here to consumers of ancient Mediterranean history media (videos, podcasts, etc.) to get a sense of who is watching, what media they are enjoying, and what they would like to see made in the future.  The survey is anonymous.  Your personal information and email are not recorded.
