The Classical Period in World History
In general, the classical period of world history spanned the millennium from 500 bce to 500 ce. During this time, a series of powerful empires developed (Rome, Persia, India, China, etc.) that were much larger in scale and scope than any of the kingdoms of the early river valley societies, including Egypt. The period was also characterized by indigenous intellectual developments in each cultural empire (Confucius in China; Buddha in South Asia; Jesus of Nazareth in Rome), the creation of large unified economic units and trading zones, cultural and religious integration and art and architectural innovation.
