"The Story of Civilization, by husband and wife Will and Ariel Durant, is an eleven-volume set of books covering Western history for the general reader. The volumes sold well for many years, and sets of them were frequently offered by book clubs.

The series was written over a span of more than four decades, and it totals four million words across nearly 10,000 pages, but is incomplete. In the first volume (Our Oriental Heritage, which covers the history of the East through 1933), Will Durant stated that he wanted to include the history of the West through the early 20th century. However, the series ends with The Age of Napoleon because the Durants both died in the 1980s – she in her 80s and he in his 90s – before they could complete additional volumes.

The first six volumes of The Story of Civilization are credited to Will Durant, with Ariel receiving recognition in the acknowledgements. In later volumes, beginning with The Age of Reason Begins, Ariel is credited as a co-author."

Tracing your Ancestors through History
Paul James-Griffiths

Ever wondered where your ancestors came from? The Table of Nations in Genesis has proved to be an accurate historical document showing the dispersion of our ancestors since the Flood. Paul James-Griffiths traces the descendants of Shem, Ham and Japeth through to modern people groups.

You can take a peek here:

It should be noted that many mythologies do make reference of (an) ancient civilization(s). Timing is however not possible and the initial questions looks for such an age. The ages being used by historians I'd take with a grain of salt. They usually are "estimates", educated guesses at best.
