Ancient Times (5000 BC to 400 AD) History is a story; Isn't it time you read it that way? This engaging series presents world history in a narrative format.

What terrible secret was buried in Shi Huangdi's tomb? Did nomads like lizard stew? What happened to Anansi the Spider in the Village of the Plantains? And how did a six-year old become the last emperor of Rome? This spirited reading of the first in Susan Wise Bauer's Story of the World history series brings to life the stories and records of the peoples of ancient times. This volume covers the major historical events from the beginning of civilization to the fall of the Roman Empire.

This Story of the World audiobook is a collaboration between Jim Weiss, whose voice is “liquid gold” (CNN TV), and Susan Wise Bauer, whose writing has been described as “timeless and intelligent” (Publishers Weekly). It may be used along with the print book, as a supplement to a traditional history curriculum, or independently.
