Ancient Egypt: a history which spans over 8,000 years, dating back to prehistoric settlements where life revolved around the Nile and the Roman conquest which saw the rise and fall of civilisations throughout Egypt. Fast forward to 49BC during the Ptolemaic period and the story of Assassin’s Creed: Origins
Recently there has been a lot more public display of anti-vaccination. The anti-vaxxer trend has taken an all-time high from the days of Pauline Hanson expressing her “interesting” views in Parliament House.
