Alexander the Great’s inexorable ten year conquest of the Persian Empire was a conquest motivated by a number of reasons; finance, revenge, opportunity, expansion and personal zealotry being amongst those debated by modern historians. In his attempts to garner Greek support for the conquest, Alexander veiled his true motivations under the guise of nationalistic revenge.

Despite the fact that Herodotus makes reference to an anticipated history of Assyria, his just known work is the History. This early composition work consolidates individual investigation into the geology, ethnology, and myths of Asia Minor with an endeavor, in Herodotus ' own particular words, to record "those extraordinary and awesome deeds, showed by both Greeks and savages" and to discover the reason for the Greco-Persian battle. A great part of the topographical and ethnographical portrayal in the History is the aftereffect of Herodotus ' own voyages; yet he likewise draws widely and trustingly on the breathtaking records of storytellers. Isolated into nine books, the History is composed in an open, recounted style with numerous stimulating diversions.

The experience that you get from reading this is similar to being told a bed time story because of how you are able to imagine and visualize what is happening. Personally, as a take away I now know the origin of how Rome was built and some of the myths behind it like Romulus and Remus for example. I was surprised that Livy would describe both tales of a story too because in my experience ancient scholars would only write what they believed and that was that. Then in the book when Romulus was King, how he tricked his neighbors to go into Rome, so he and his people could take women to marry and how it ended with the women saying it was all their fault sets the standards of how women were perceived back then. Which was trouble, even though the women didn’t do anything (not including the part of the book where Tullia convinced her husband to kill her father), but that’s how it all worked back
