As a business student I didn't have many chances to learn about ancient history. So now that I am out of school, I like to fill in the gaps of my education in other disciplines. (like history) I really enjoyed the journey from the beginning of Rome to the fall of the empire. The first couple lectures explained how Romans lived and their beliefs. By the middle of the lectures it was more of just listing leaders and their battles. I would have been interested to know more about how their lifestyles evolved over the time period as well. For those who are lifetime learners and enjoy history, this group of courses are for you.
