I fascinated by all of the above, plus some others, for example:Celtic culture: China: Rapa Nui: Japan: Inca Empire: India: Korea: Ancient Crete (pre-greek, Minoan civilization):
*I'm fascinated* (typo).
Anyway, I voted for Mayan culture, my second favorite in the poll is Sumerian.
Thanks for the MHO
I’m lucky to have visited most sights in and around Athens and have visited Giza and even entered the great pyramid. Egypt is enthralling and I’d love to spend more time there.
Have an opinion?
Ancient Greece would be my pick. In terms of philosophical history - that is tracing the pedigree of the principle ideas that currently dominate Western civilization, my focus tends to be on the Enlightenment and its aftermath. (For political/military/diplomatic history, my focus is the post-Napoleonic period to the present day, albeit in the specifically military sphere, only from World War I on.)That said, ancient Greece is the source of most of Western philosophy and the antecedents to the Enlightenment are to be found there. Indeed, the most obvious flaws in Enlightenment thinking can be seen when contrasted to the ideas in ancient Greece - especially those of Aristotle. How Greece got to where it did, the sociology and history and all the rest - and its Golden Age - is an endlessly fascinating topic. Most of what the West is was born there and it is, by far, the most interesting place to study. Not that the others are not interesting. It is just that Greece is, in a very real way, still the most obviously and immediately relevant to our own times.
The steps leading up to the Parthenon are not cut at a perfectly straight angle. Because if they were, a defect of vision in the human eye would make the line seem slightly bowed inward due to the extreme length of the steps. Therefore, the Greeks cut the steps to bow outward at an infinitesimal degree. Just enough to correct for the defect in the eye, making the steps appear completely straight to the casual observer. I'll take the Greeks, thanks.
Greece was always my favorite. History overall is a passion of mine and ancient Greece a favorite. The city-states, the philosophers, the architecture, culture, mythology, military and naval technology, rulers. If I had to choose on era to live in that wasn't my own I'd pick ancient Greece.
Id have to say Egypt because of ancient it is. And because of how much I've learned through the study of their Alchemy. I've always had a strong connection to it since before I could remember. Idn what is do without their knowledge. I'd still be searching for God if they didn't help lead me to Him
Greek/rome because they still influence our world today. Mayan and Egyptian are interesting but they had little impact outside their own area or time zone.
Aztecs, Mayans, Olmecs, Incas, Egyptians and Greece.
I'm highly fascinated with what the Mayans buit, well I mean... they would play sports with human heads if they wanted... but I'm very curious to know how humans evolved on the Americas, before Europeans fucked the place
Totally all of them, but probably the Mayans the most.
Out of these poll options the Maya are the most fascinating to me. But I'm fascinated by all of the ancient cultures.
I've been weirdly interested in the egyptians since I was a kid, but I like most history.
Same here! Cheers my Egyptian sister from another... Mister?
Lol... I'm actually Egyptian
@SpookyKat Lmao I guess so :)
@Nadim171 Oh that's cool
Sumer, the base of our culture.ancient Egypt, doing so much without science.Ancient Greece, the base of our philosophy, science and architecture.
I know about Greek and Egyptian culture via pop culture. I would like to know more about the Indus Valley Civilization and the Maya.
Ancient Greece, also the rest of Europe, but there are not many written records of that, only rune writings but thats not comparable to parchment or paper writings.
I have always been interested in The Ancients. When kids were either all about dinosaurs, trucks, or playing house-- I was all about Greek Myths. Then of course, Egypt, Sumer, and then it just keeps going.I am most fascinated by Scythians, Phoenicians, East African Nubians, and Slavic Indo-European tribes like Sarmatians. Gaels / Celts are fairly interesting too, considering northern Spain.The Mayan are literally younger than The Olmecs. I would be more curious about Cahokians and other, older civilized people groups of The Americas. Polynesians, etc.
Ancient Egypt seems interesting, but I don't know a ton about it.
I guess I'm most intrigued by Greek culture and more curious of Egyptian and Mayan engineering/architectural feats
Egypt for the pyramids because aliens did it for sure
Indians... the ones before Columbus...Aboriginal from AustraliaBlackfoot indians (canada)Chinese dynastys which build the great wall
Egyptian and Malaysian. Greek culture is oversaturated. It use to be my fav but played out to much now days
Celtic, jkjk.Sumer seems pretty cool and mysterious.
Egyptian history has always fascinated me. Just finished the book “Chariots of the Gods” which covered many of the questions on ancient Egypt
Do you watch Ancient Aliens?
@Jaye234 yes I do
Awesome!! I happen to love Ancient Aliens and thought you followed along with it too by mentioning the book!
Out of those Im between Egypt and Greece. I like Rome most of all.
I'm from Egypt but Greece defenaltey, I really love greece so much! ❤🇬🇷
Maya is great because those are my ancestors.
So can we say mayans had super cute butt's also?
@OrangeBoy2 Among the Maya people, many did and do have cute butts... but not all. Just like in any human community.
Well said! : )
All of the above. I chose Mayan though.
I voted Sumer, because they're the oldest
Egyptian mathematics and engineering
Greece and egypt. Both soCool!
Greco-Roman is the best.
Greece followed by rome

Sumerian. Swole is a Sumerian fugitive from the past.
@JimRSmith more like a sumerian refugee resettled in the USA

How could you leave out Rome? Or do they count as pseudo Greeks? I mean they invented democracy, capitalism, banking and many other things that are central to our lives today
I know that Rome is often the favourite, so i purposefully left it out
