The Ancient History Timeline
Without a basic framework of history, it is impossible to appreciate the many ancient sites that you will see on a typical tour of the Holy Land. For this reason, we have created a course built around an interactive timeline divided into 5 categories: the Bible, the Levant, Egypt, Mesopotamia and the West. Rather than focus on a dry narration of events, we string together important people, artifacts, architecture and literature. Each write-up is accompanied with maps, photography from the ancient sites, and pictures from museums around the world.
The course covers 10 periods. Each period concludes with a quiz, and the course concludes with a final exam. Student progress is tracked in their account. Upon completion the student will receive a certificate of completion.
There is a beta version available here.
