I don't, I'm afraid!. It's often taught in a boring way, but when understood properly it's the story of how the world we live in came to be, and how every aspect of the world around us that we take for granted came to be!. It's the story of humanity struggling to come to terms with the world, and then tame it and control it; and it's also the story of how mankind learned to live together, how the structure of society evolved, how out ancestors understood death and spirituality, their place in the wider universe!.!.!. sorry to disagree with you, but I find all that stuff fascinating!. If your teacher isn't getting that sense of wonder and importance across to you then you have my sympathies!.

If that is the case then you may find a better way into the subject through novels set in ancient times!. I'm far too old and senile to remember titles or authors, sadly, but I remember that when I was growing up historical fiction was second only to fantasy in it's ability to transport and fascinate me, so there's good stuff out there!. Find a sympathetic Librarian and ask them to recommend some good stories with gripping characters that happen to be set in ancient times!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

You know what is boring!? Astronomy!. I'm a physicist and i'm expected to be amazed by the little lights in the sky but i just cant take it!. The whole thing appears frivolous to me!.

I love history, and science, and stuff but being able to identify which dot is cassiopea or Jupiter, blerg!. It bores me and after 5 minutes i just turn on the TV to watch the history channel!. Hopefully they wont be showing more truckers on ice!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Ancient history is awesome, it sounds like its your teacher that sucks!. I used to love Western Civilization, but my class was the worst class ever!. There is no way I could sit through the class, but I could watch the History Channel about Ancient history all night long!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

No, I find it very interesting, though I do find details of military history less interesting, accounts of battles etc bore me, but that is the same with all of history for me!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Maybe it's your approach to history!. Both Ancient AND U!.S!. History!. Remember, people with the same blood that runs through your veins experienced that history and had it affect them personally!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Kind of, but ancient battles like Thermopylae's you will be surprised on how they affected the modern world!. Www@QuestionHome@Com

I'm the opposite!. I LOVE learning about ancient history!! It's US History that I find to be boring!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
