  1. Sup. How ya doin’? Just saying – I have a BIG project, involving a timeline and 3 ancient civilizations, and need to write down 4 major events for each civilization, with a theme that my class needs to do – and I chose sports. One of the civilizations I chose to work on is Ancient Greece, and the olympics that you’ve wrote about in the top 10 list helped me a lot – note that I’m 13.

  5. Dear Saugat,

    You have a welcoming smile, so I thought I would write!

    Actually, there are some Roman Emperors who were very honorable men, and they deserve a mention, I think. Nerva comes to mind, as does Severus Alexander–men who strived to do what was best for the People and for the greater good of the Roman Empire. Although their legacies or intentions fell short, I think good and honorable leaders should be mentioned, and this may or may not include Emperors per se, i.e..some Empresses and administrators under an Emperor can be mentioned to when you think they deserve attention.

    Regards, Charley

  6. You are genius , I was going through so many website in search of ancient civilisation research , I was shocked to find out it’s written from a nepalese top notch .

  7. Hi My name is Alaina, I am doing a research project on ancient Rome and your information on the ancient leaders was very helpful and entreating to me. Would I be able to ask you some questions on what you know about ancient Rome? Thank you!

  8. Dear Sir
    I visited Kathmandu and Pokhara a few years ago, and a wonderful gentleman named Mr Adhikari met my friend and myself at the airport and ferried us around in his taxi, looking after us all the time we were there. I wondered if he was a relative of yours as you have the same name. (My name was Parsons at the time not Smith)
    kind regards

  12. Hi SAugat
    I’m a retired secondary school principal from Geelong Victoria Australia. I’ve always had a passion for history and I love your work. I grew up in the time when books preceded google, so the web is brilliant. Vivek just sold my home to an Iranian family working at Deakin University. As a result I’ve been reading up on the culture and history. Australians are isolated but have a very easy going multicultural population. I’d like your perspective on the Middle East, especially the issues between Iran and Iraq. The extent to which politics, religion, culture etc impacts on the ‘hatred’ that exists across the region. Cheers and keep up your work. I’ve sent your site to my kids who are all teachers. Thanks again Toni.

  13. Hi again. I love your comments. My favourite historical is not Hannibal, but Genghis Khan. Any leader who could bring disparate tribes together must rate a good mention. If you are in Australia do please contact me before you arrive. Cheers toni

  14. Hi Nikita,

    I am glad to know that you enjoy reading about Egyptian civilization. Let me know what you want to know more. Check our Egyptian civilization section. There are some wonderful articles.

  15. Hi!
    Enjoyed your site. Interesting about these ancient civilizations. However, just curious regarding Mesoamerican civilizations – why didn’t you include Mayan civilization since it was considered the longest tenured of all Mesoamerican. And for that matter, why not also include the Olmecs, who probably influenced the Mayan empire even thought the Olmecs came after the Mayans historically. Just curious.

  16. World oldest civilization is Indus Valley Civilization, recent discovered sites ie. Rakhigarhi
    (Haryana, India) is going back to about 7540 BCE. it means it is earlier than Mehrgarh civilization, One more excavation ie. Recent excavations at Aktha and Ramnagar, two sites very near to Varanasi, show them to be from 1800 BC India (The name of Ramnagar has been adopted from Ramayana, nobody knows when Ramayana was written), please visit the abovesaid ancient places
