AncientThe Ancient Period will cover all military conflicts around the world up until approximately 476 C.E. or the Fall of Ancient Rome.

These conflicts are very diverse and range across a wide spectrum from Assyrian warfare to the Warring States of China and beyond. Ancient military conflicts will mainly be focused upon the ancient civilizations found around the world. Individual conflicts will not be singled out so, for example, there will not be separate pages for The Punic Wars and Roman Civil Wars. These individual conflicts will have tags so that one can search for them, however. Also one could search for Rome or Persia or Egypt during the ancient period.

The time period will be divided by location more than time. Ancient conflicts have fewer memorials that have survived but they provide an excellent examination of warfare in ancient times. Most ancient memorials commemorate the exploits of powerful military or political leaders with little remembrance of the ordinary soldier or sailor who gave his life. And most surviving commemorations are stone structures.

Medieval Times

The Medieval period: 


The Medieval Period  includes the period from 476 to 1500.  This middle period covers many small and large conflicts around the world as civilizations transitioned from ancient times to the modern period.   This time period includes but is not limited to Crusades, Hundred Years War, Byzantine Empire, Mongol Empire, and  Islamic Conquests.

1500 - 1700

1500-1700: 

The early modern period was wracked by a large number of conflicts.  These included the Thirty Years War, English Civil War, Religious Wars in  Europe, Colonial Wars, Suleiman’s Wars, and Babar’s wars in India.

1700 - 1900

1700-1900:


This two hundred year period of war saw the completion of the transition to modern warfare with the development of modern standing armies.  From the American Revolution to the Franco-Prussian War and the colonial wars in areas such as South Africa, this period saw the rise of powerful national armies and conflicts across the globe.

20th Century

20th century (1900s): 

This century saw the world wracked by devastating conflicts that inflicted massive loss of life including large civilian casualties.  Technological developments also led to the creation of weapons of mass destruction.

21st Century

21st Century:

Our current period is made up of many small-scale conflicts across the world.

About

About

In the late spring of 2004, I watched as my students went merrily on their way around campus as if no important events were occurring in their midst. The media and the public had not yet begun to chronicle the deaths of Americans in the fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the president’s approval ratings were still fairly high. I was bothered that my students seemed so oblivious to the wars of their generation. So, along with my colleagues, we developed our annual project for the coming year for our Cornerstone Honors students.

They were charged with designing, funding and building a memorial on campus for the Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. They first had to research previous memorials and then both classes of students (first and second year) had to agree on the design and explain why they chose it. Their design was simple — a wall of dog tags listing the names, rank and date of death. It was moving and humbling. Their inspiration was of course the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C., but their reasoning was that they did not want to make a political statement but rather focus upon the individual lives lost.

They proceeded to raise over $6,000 in 2 1/2 months! They worked at Sonic delivering food to customers and asking for donations. They held a yard sale, and they set up tables outside of Sam’s Club. They also went directly to suppliers of the needed materials and asked for donations. Their efforts were tremendous and stunning. They were ready to dedicate the memorial, although it was not complete with all of the dog tags, on Veteran’s Day, November 11, 2004.

My students’ decision to build a simple memorial that focused upon the individual loss and not upon patriotism or politics inspired me. I began to observe commemorations wherever I visited and to note similarities as well as differences. The following year, the students continued to add names, and I assigned students to research and write about various monuments around the world. From these assignments has grown my desire to create an interactive format by which I can continue to teach my students and help them see the world in new ways. An NEH Summer Seminar in Rome, which focused upon Trajan’s Column, was the initial kickoff of this project and allowed me to incorporate ancient commemorations. After some initial work, however, I realized that this could and should become a much larger project. In the summer of 2010 I decided to focus on developing the site and was awarded an NEH Teaching Development Fellowship to create and integrate this site into the teaching of my World Civilizations course. Funding from the NEH has helped to make this initial development possible.
