This Ancient Civilisations course enables learners to study life in an early civilisation based on the analysis and interpretation of physical and written remains.

Ancient Civilisations stimulates learners' curiosity and imagination, and enriches their appreciation of humanity and the value of the ancient past. It shows how the world and its people have changed, as well as the significant legacies that exist into the present, and gives a context for this interconnectedness of past and present. The study of Ancient Civilisations illustrates the development of some of the distinctive features of contemporary societies, for example social organisation, systems of law, governance and religion. Ancient Civilisations is also concerned with the possible motivations, and actions of individuals and groups, and how they shaped the political, social and cultural landscapes of the ancient world.

Ancient Civilisations continues to develop the historical skills and understandings taught in the Foundation to Year 10 History curriculum. Learners develop transferable skills associated with the process of historical inquiry and communication.
