You might suppose that what happened in the ancient past has no impact on your life today. Think again! Many things we use, eat and wear today have origins that can be traced back to ancient civilizations. We can, for example, look to the past to see a model for many modern governments and to find forerunners of everyday items such as socks, toothbrushes and make-up. Learn why you should care about history and get a fresh look at the world today by learning about the ideas, discoveries and inventions of the distant past.
