The beauty of 30 Masterpieces of the Ancient World is that it takes you all around the globe, from Europe and the Middle East to Asia and the Americas. You'll revisit familiar cultural touchstones, such as the Greek Olympic Games or the Roman Republic, and you'll encounter unfamiliar-even terrifying-rituals such as human sacrifice in the mysterious Aztec and Moche societies. The artwork these cultures produced ranges from decorative earspools to massive architectural wonders, from skillfully woven textiles and masterfully wrought pottery to stunningly expressive sculptures and paintings. For all this variety, though, common themes emerge and connect us in our shared humanity-not merely among ancient societies, but between the ancients and our world today. In this extraordinary journey, you'll encounter breathtaking paintings, sculptures, reliefs, textiles, and architectural triumphs from around the globe and created across thousands of years, and you'll study what binds them together-and the lessons they offer us today.
