Well I've started to have a lot of free time upon my hands because college is finally over. (YAY! No wait...) I have a major in Ancient history and i was wondering what civilizations you people find interesting. As said above i have a lot of free time so i want to put my major to a good use and start a study. I plan to spend about a year on this project. Primarily when i'm not working. But what civilizatons do you find interesting? Any that just puzzles you as how the hell it got there? Just that sorta thing. Just post what you like. Any links would be appriciated.

Pre-columbian contact between Europe/asia and North America. There is evidence but very lttle serious inquiry (that I know of) being done.

maybe you could shed some light on the Malta Hypogeum(not sure of spelling).
There has been a few threads on it, but it has never gotten past " Man, this is cool, here is a map." There is just not a lot of info out there on it. Put that education to good use and shed some light please

I love to read about the early history of the roman empire, i think its facinating how a one person can start a settlement that could grow in territoy, power, and overall importance to become what the roman empire eventually became.

I thought Rome was started by two people, who were raised by wolves. That is how the legend goes at least.

Then please research Malta. The Hypogeum is a mystery without an answer. If you want a challenge, there it is.

There was a city in South America that showed very high tech. It's big thing was it was very high up on a mountain. So high most things don't grow-or grow stunted.
Have stones placed even bigger than on pyrmaids.
I am sorry I don't have the name or exact location, I have no doubt some smart ATS'R will. hiw did they grow food. How did they move such large stones up so high.....
Ok, It is a project I would love answers to, but u asked for a tough project.

The Romans in Britain and the influence on the populace and culture that exists even today. Also the Germanic tribes and their resistance to Rome that also had an impact on History. The defeat of 3 Roman Legions led by Publius Quintilius Varus by the German tribes led by Arminius is an interesting study of how the Germanic tribes united and defeated the might of Rome.

Study... the Olmec, Africa-South America connection. Oh oh do the cambodian temple and why its aligned with the constellation dracco(least thats what I have heard). Or figure out who drew the Nazca lines and what they mean... I'll think of more later

You may be thinking of Machu Pichu...but Byrd's the expert on that....

On that vein, I'd like to suggest trying to establish the existence of a trade route between ancient South America, and Egypt, as it has been found that Egyptian mummies were stuffed with herbs, etc. that ONLY grow in South America....suggesting there was trade.

I read that some Mummies were found to have traces of Tabbaco and Coca, is that true? As far as im aware Coca is only found in South America. That would be a worthwhile study.

er? think theres quite a bit more to it than that-perhaps you should get in touch with some of the archeologists that are still strugling to piece together some of the larger pieces of missing evidence and fill them in!

What volcanic eruption?

As ive come to understand it,the islanders left (supposedley) after civil war broke out because of the factors of depleted live stock and over consumption of main building materials (mainly wood) hence up until recent years the island was devoid of trees! it now has a small eucalyptus forest in its centre.

plus all the other mysterys of how the settlers got there and which gods they actually worshipped!

I recently read that an ancient township had been discovered beneath the ruins of Pomeii. I find that totally fascinating. I guess the Romans had no idea that there had been a town there....or were they like modern man and figured it just couldn't happen to them??
Anyways, go for something more recently discovered or less extensively covered.
