Historiae Antiquae is a web site on the history, archeology and ancient languages of the Mediterranean basin and the Near East, where most of the history of humanity took place. It is here that cultural, political and religious of Western civilization roots, exported to the New World, lie. The roots of the Greek one, which has contaminated Eastern Europe, and of the Arab one, more recent, which dominates the Asian and African coasts of the Mediterranean.
Most of the topics are addressed at an academic level, and therefore indicated above all for university students, even if the clarity of the expositions makes the contents easily usable even by those who are simply passionate and curious to deepen their knowledge about our extraordinary past.
This web site has been conceived in such a way as to tell the history by focusing on social, political, economic, religious facts and problems, without following a scholastic exposition (chronological and notional) of the story, in our opinion useless and counterproductive.
Instead, we will talk about the debates, controversies, new discoveries and conferences that help keep interest in history and historical research alive.
Our goal is to spread culture and historical memory, and make historical documents and historical information easily available on the web.
