Ancient Civilizations & Archaeological Journeys
These are a very specialized group of travel experiences. Sometimes they tend to cross over into the “Faith Based” journeys since both are centered within extremely ancient locations of past civilizations. Indeed, most religions were established during the same timeframes as many of these monumental groups of peoples. These were the early Phoenicians, Greeks, Minoans, Etruscans, Egyptians, Carthaginians, and Romans that plied the Mediterranean. Also known as “The Middle Sea” and “Mare Nostrum” in Latin. This area and its people are considered to be the “Cradle of Civilization.”
They have left us with an enormous treasure to explore and study. Every day some new wonder is discovered that changes what was originally thought. It is an ever- evolving process and we all have the opportunity to join in, if we so choose, or simply visit and stand in awe of the monuments they left behind and all of their accomplishments.
In South and Central America the Aztecs, Mayans, Olmec, and Inca settlements were also carving out their place in archaeological history with fantastic relics and pyramids of their own. There are many other areas of the world, such as the Chinese Dynasties, the Mongols, and many other Asian and Far Eastern tribes with their own stories to tell.
The Holy Land, Jerusalem, Turkey, Jordan, and the Middle East have their own important sites such as: The Sumerians and Palmyra, the Dead Sea, Petra, and Cappadocia. These are some of the most ancient and spectacular ruins still around.
There are a number of cruise lines and tour companies that specialize in the ancient world. Joining you are professionals in their field who will take you to the most phenomenal sites, providing educational lectures along the way. Some provide the opportunity to join in on a current dig and become an “archaeologist” for the day.
