Teaser Tuesday: The History of the Ancient World



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:


  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
My Teaser:
"Written history began sometime around 3000 BC. At the beginning of that millennium, there were only two things imprtant enough to communicate across space and time: the deeds of great men, and the ownership of cows, grain, and sheep."
