Where Did It Come From?

This series will explore the historical origins of things we use in our everyday life - from modern medicine, from the weapons of mass destruction, from sports stadiums to tools of astrology. Organized by civilization or culture, we will learn how these ancient inventions were developed, why they were developed, and how they've contributed to modern society. Along the way, we will also learn about the life of that civilization or culture.
