Ancient is a Norwegian band that, while not really troll metal, had troll metal themes on their 1994 EP 'Trolltaar'. The band started as a solo project of guitarist Aphazel in 1992, subsequently adding drummer Grimm. Time went; they released their debut album, shortly after which Grimm left the band. Aphazel then moved to the United States, formed a new line-up and became obsessed with vampirism. Ancient used to have a raw black metal sound, similar to Darkthrone's blacker works. Beginning with The Canaan Chronicle, they moved towards a more Nordic/atmospheric blackmetal sound, like Emperor. After a period of turmoil concerning their line_up, including the exit of founder Aphazel, they went on to add Gothic-style instruments like violins, female vocals and synthesizers to their music. Most of their records, with the exception of Det Glemte Riket, have been issued on Metal Blade Records.

Ancient India is usually taken to refer to the "golden age" of classical Hindu culture, as reflected in Sanskrit literature, beginning around 500 BCE with the sixteen monarchies and 'republics' known as the Mahajanapadas, stretched across the Indo-Gangetic plains from modern-day Afghanistan to Bangladesh.
Ancient Greek - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2041 words)
It was spoken in the independent Greek city states of Classical Greece, in Alexander the Great's empire and in the kingdoms of the Diadochi, it was the second official language of the classical Roman Empire, and it was the official language of the Eastern Roman Empire in its early years (later evolving into Byzantine Greek).
Although ancient pronunciation can never be reconstructed with certainty, Greek in particular is very well documented from this period, and there is little disagreement among linguists as to the general nature of the sounds that the letters represented.
In Ancient Greek nouns (including proper nouns) have five cases (nominative, genitive, dative, accusative and vocative), three genders (masculine, feminine and neuter), and three numbers (singular, dual and plural).
