Subject: Ancient math

I am in the process of gathering information to write a magnet curriculum about math as it developed around the world. Among the cultures I will cover are the Romans, the Egyptians, and the Mayans. What is the value of teaching students ancient math such as that of the ancient Romans, Egyptians, and Mayans?
