You may be asking yourself, why would I watch a video about Alexander the Great, when I am not a history major. Well, firstly, it won’t hurt and I promise you it’s not boring, and secondly, it will give you a chance to take a break from your work (and you can claim your break is for educational purposes).
But as you watch this video of Alexander the Great, you will realise there are some striking similarities to how we see modern day celebrities and how we elevate people who are famous. Don’t believe me? Just take a look at the video.
It gives you something to think about as well when you are doing research. Sometimes there is a need to look at historical data and events to gain a better understanding of how theories and culture have evolved. But you might be surprised to learn that some things never change.
And you thought history was boring……
