Ancient Times

The Ancient Period : 

The 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.
