15 Best Movies With Accurate Depictions of Ancient History

"After a certain amount of time passes, the line between history and legend becomes a little fuzzy. Some of the physical evidence of these bygone times survives and we can piece together how people lived. Mundane information, like clothing, architecture, or daily social protocol often isn't enough to make a movie, and that's where some of the relative anachronism can happen. Vintage movies about ancient times were usually about Rome and always involved certain famous historic characters that general audiences would already recognize. Since then, the ancient world, on film, has branched out to include comedies, war stories, and serious dramas. These movies don't get everything right, but there's a lot to be said for how they recreate the background, setting, and people of bygone civilizations."
