Storyline

Never before could you get this close to 7,000 years of history. Digital effects technology and dramatizations re-create rituals and events, from the bloodletting of Maya kings and a pharaoh's last journey to the secret pleasures of a Roman empress. Original location cinematography in 25 countries takes you from Cuzco in Peru to Petra in Jordan, from ancient Mesopotamia to modern Tibet. Computer graphics restore Egypt's pyramids and the Great Wall of China. Part 1: Mesopotamia: return to Eden. Part 2: Ancient Egypt: quest for immortality. Part 3: Aegean: legacy of Atlantis. Part 4: Greece: a moment of excellence. Part 5: China: dynasties of power. Part 6: Rome: the ultimate empire. Part 7: The Maya: the blood of kings. Part 8: The Inca: secrets of the ancestors. Part 9: Africa: a history denied. Part 10: Tibet: the end of time. Written by Fiona Kelleghan <fkelleghan@aol.com>

Superb
8 October 1999 | by See all my reviews

Very informative and entertaining. Tells of the major ancient civilizations in chronological order. Wondefuly made to be able to show to middle school students and be entertaining for adults. For a "Law & Order" fan to see (or rather hear) the star of his favorite show is wondeful in a social studies class. A perfect 10 documentary.
