The Ancient era is the first age of Call to Power II. It begins in 4000 BC and lasts until the discovery and usage of Gunpowder in the 1400s (15th century). After this the Renaissance begins. This 5500-year period is divided into 3 eras, 2 of which are playable: Ancient, Classical, and Middle. There were no scenarios uploaded that focused solely on the Middle Ages era so it only gets a passing footnote here. This page will mainly focus on the early Ancient era, rather than the later Ancient eras.
The Ancient era began with the discovery of writing. Before this discovery your civilization will still be part of the Pre-Historic era. Usually players in this age will start off with a wandering (nomadic) settler and wish to make a nice first impression of there neighbors if they are lucky enough to discover any. After you select a nice spot for your city you begin to grow your empire or civilization. Because of the length and depth of the Classical age this page will mainly focus on the early ancient period.
