Part of a four-volume work presenting the events of history in their context from 10,000 BC to AD 1992, this first volume covers the ancient world from 10,000 BC to AD 799. Alongside political dates are placed the key events in the arts, science, religion, plus birth and death dates. This enables each occurence, whether a battle, a piece of sculpture, or a scientific discovery, to be seen in context with contemporary events elsewhere. The other volumes in the "Chronology of World History" cover, respectively, the medieval world (800-1491), the expanding world (1492-1762) and the modern world (1763-1992).
