TOP REVIEWS FROM ORGANISING AN EMPIRE: THE ASSYRIAN WAY
Great course. Important to learn about the Assyrian Empire as it influenced so much of what was to follow. This complicated subject was clearly explained.
This is such an amazing course! Prof.Radner has done an excellent job at presenting topics and organizing materials. Highly recommend this course to anyone who's interested in ancient civilizations.
I love learning about the empires and the people of the past. It gives an idea of how much progression and achievement have been acquired by these ancient ancestors to make our lives what they are.
Other courses on ancient history sometimes stay as mere chronicles and not a message. This course is different. It gives a strong emphasis on how ancient ideas are never ancient at all.
