    Greek, their influence on Mathematics, Rhetoric, Logic, Drama and the Art's can still be felt today. It's a shame they got conquered, they were on the verge of an industrial revolution.

    Great poll - but I just had to vote "other" because I couldn't decide. There's not a single civilization listed on there that I'm not fascinated by.

    I actually like the ancient egypt and the Roman Empire... Great cultures - in my opinion... Even learned Latin to get "closer"... Not that I succeded much...
    I'm not a smart man, but I know what love is.

    I don't know if we each have a destiny, or if we're all just floating around accidental-like on a breeze, but I, I think maybe it's both. Maybe both is happening at the same time

    Chose celtic, but it was an equal choice between Celts and Hittites...

    Also very interested in the vikings and the mongols. The aztecs and mayans also interest me. And pretty much any nomadic culture.
    To trust another you must first trust yourself. Without trust of self how can you have the trust in yourself to make the right decision in who you trust. - David Allain




    The most common cause of anger is pain. People are akin to animals in one very true sense, when hurt, they lash out. When in pain, people lash out and cause others pain, thus doubling the pain. Those they cause pain then lash out in their pain, causing yet more people pain. Behind every anger, there lies pain. - David Allain

    I would have to say the Macedonians (or Alexander the Great I should say), but the Babylonians, Ancient Japanese and Persians are close

    So, it's about time I vote in my own poll.
    I picked: Ancient Egypt.
    Only because I spent most of my life reading and obsessed with it, it was only recently that my interest has waned.

    Some others I'm interested in: Aztecs. Mayans. Incans. Olmec and/or Toltec
    Native American. Mespotamia. Indus Valley. Greece. Rome. Minoan and Mycenean. Plus any place that catches my eye.

    I voted Celtic, though, as an Arthurian fan, I was tempted to tick Avalon ... though some would say that he was Celtic anyway ...

    With the Vikings a close second.

    The Etruscans for me. I'm very interested in everything I can find about that culture. I am also interested in Roman, Greek, Egyptian and many others.
