Our modern understanding of history shifts and changes faster than ever these days with the advent of the Internet communications era. The reason is apparent – unprecedented free and unhampered access to multiple global information streams, allowing the broadest ever data harvesting and source analysis. Such unique new possibilities are especially relevant to the researching of the most ancient history of the world, since access to the most ancient and unique document sources of the past, had also been the hardest to get in previous years, for multiple reasons of various nature.
