#AncientTexts That Changed the World

Long before the Bible, humans recorded tales of our origins as a species and the birth of our civilizations. This presentation endeavors to introduce the viewer to some of these oldest and most important texts. We cannot stress enough that this is not a comprehensive nor complete list. Such a compilation would be many dozens of hours long and completely impractical for a single presentation. Perhaps the best perspective to take is that this is kind of like a greatest hits list.
