START WITH REFERENCE SOURCES for the essential background information on your subject.
Examples of Reference Sources: Almanacs, atlases, bibliographies, dictionaries / thesauruses, encyclopedias, handbooks, and indexes.
The print and electronic sources below are encyclopedias and other reference sources that will give you a broad overview of your subject:

This will allow you to better understand where the specific information you find later fits in the bigger picture.
Ancient Civilizations generally

Note: Reference sources can also be cited in NoodleTools using the ISBN (International Standard Book Number) if provided. The ISBN can be found on the back cover of a book or on the back side of the title page. It can also be found in databases containing sources originally produced in print. If you don't find it, we can help you. Books published before about 1967 won't have an ISBN.
