I think world history influences us today, by teaching us to learn from our worlds past mistakes. Every year, farther and farther into the future, our world gets better and better in every way because we know what not to do. My project was about Cleopatra, and what caused her actions. For those of you that don’t know, Cleopatra killed her brothers/husbands, and sister to make sure that her first born would rule Egypt when it was his time to. But in order to do this Cleopatra had to ally herself with mark Antony, and Julius Caesar. But Cleopatra should have chosen better ally’s because it wasn’t before long that Rome took over Egypt.
Looking at the other projects I learned about many different cultures that I had never even thought about before.
