A: Believe it or not, many things such as inventions, ideas, laws and traditions that we find in today's world were actually developed by ancient civilizations. Also, sometimes we don't think about how the world around us and/or the past effects our day-to-day lives so, it is important to learn about the people, places and things that are not so recent or that are unfamiliar to us to help us understand things in our world today.
