The ancient period dramas cover several periods and eras from around the world. Starting around 3600 B.C. with The Bronze Age and ending at the fall of several large empires such as the Roman Empire around 500 A.D.
Throughout these few thousand years, you will see the Dynasties of China, Ancient Greece, the Middle Kingdom of Egypt, Mesopotamia, the start of the Dark Age and many more.
