Abstract:

We have only recently begun to realize that the ancient world was more advanced than we thought. Our whole picture of the time comes from Rome, a civilization that built bridges and aqueducts. Those achievements have been admired and copied ever since. But could the golden glow of Rome be blinding us to the fact that there were other, more advanced civilizations around? Perhaps it's time to turn away from Rome to the world that Romans regarded as barbarian -- which included, rather surprisingly, the Greeks.
