Ancient History Defined
"The study of ancient civilization is concerned with the earliest segments of the much broader subject called ancient history. The span of ancient history began with the invention of writing in about 3100 BC and lasted for more than 35 centuries. Mankind existed long before the written word, but writing made the keeping of a historical record possible."
"Ancient Civilization." Britannica Student Encyclopedia. 2004. Encyclopædia Britannica Online. 17 Mar. 2004 <http://search.eb.com/ebi/article?eu=294590>.
Ancient history also draws from related fields such as the archaeology and the classics. This guide identifies indexes for searching for historical literature, journals and magazines that focus on ancient history and related fields, and reference works dealing with ancient history.
