On My Mind: How I've been interested in history ever since I was little. I have been self-teaching myself since I was six. Why am I interested in history? The three ancient cultures, Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, and Ancient Rome have always interested me because of how they relate to Americans now. Ancient Egypt's architectural skills, Ancient Greece's form of democracy, and Ancient Rome's economy all relate to modern America. History is interesting and fascinating and I think other people should be interested too.
