After checking the previous months' sig subjects, I had a few ideas. I was going to go with the "Age of Enlightenment" but figured that might be a little limiting. Scientific Instruments was my next choice but it might possibly be too similar (for some, lol) to last month's Torture topic so how about The Ancient World?

For the purposes of the contest, I'll define the Ancient World as 3000 BC to the fall of Rome or thereabouts.

Pretty wide subject...

Good luck

One question: are we limited to western civilization (the whole Rome thing) or is that open? I originally wasn't going to enter this month (I mean, how do you top winning your first sig contest?), but the subject is sooooo tempting. Must... resist...

Suho, you're definitely not limited to the west. There are so many amazing ancient civilizations, it would be a shame to focus on Rome only so go for it. Anything ancient - worldwide.

Please give us (me) an example of something that happened around 3000 BC so that we can know what the earlier limit is.

I don't think that it is wise to keep asking questions. The thing is to be creative. Take the given phrase and apply your own ideas to it. Take it for a spin. Don't disreguard the idea in its entirety, but use it as a starting block, and build on it. Use it simply for inspiration.

If you see the title and think 250,000 B.C. then go for that, if you see it and think 19th century use that as well. And if you think of something completely off the wall from that go with it.

The rules apply loosely in these halls, your wearing a strait jacket but it doesn't have to be on that tight.

I understand not everyone is into history so here's some brief info to help you out - I'd define the ancient world as anything between the Sumerian civilization (around 3500 BC) right through to the fall of the Roman empire (300- 400 AD). That's about 3500 -4000 years worth of material you can draw from. Famous civilizations from this time period include Greece, Rome, Egypt, Celts & Druids, Carthage, Aryans, etc... Structures include things like the Great Wall of China, Egyptian pyramids, Stonehenge. Many ideas via these links:

However, if you want to make a stone age axe or something else that may fall out of the time realm I mentioned, then go for it. I won't be picky

When you have a sig for this contest you should post it in this thread. Please don't use your regular sigs here, as this thread can get really graphic-intensive. There is no voting for or against signatures, it is up to this month's judge (and last month's winner) Amerasu to decide about the winner for this month. (Who gets to start and judge the next competition.. and so on and so forth.)

If you don't know how or where to host your sig, take a look here.

Just a friendly reminder, folks... don't forget to turn off your sigs unless they are actual entries.

Wolfen and Maskkkk, maybe you could edit those sigs out? It would make it less confusing for Amerasu (and the rest of us), I think.

Thanks...

OK, I guess I'm up next.

There I was, whining and moaning about the whole Roman Empire thing, and then I come up with a sig that's so Western Civ 101 it's not funny. How i(r)onic.



I promise you I will come up with something else (most probably Asian Civ). This was the first thing that popped into my head, and I couldn't get rid of it until I made the sig. Now that my brain is cleared I can start thinking about something else.
