Myth Busting
15 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

Joining Michael Wood as he explores myths and legends from Ancient Greece to Ancient Britain is like going personally with a time traveler on his journey. The discoveries that Wood makes are just as magical as the legends themselves. As he uncovers ancient traditions and long forgotten worlds we see his enthusiasm like a child on Christmas and it's infectious drawing us in as we learn the true stories of the places and people enshrined in myth.

"In Search of Myth and Legends" actually exceeded my expectation for an afternoon of entertainment, but as it carries the same charm as all of Wood's documentaries I shouldn't be surprised. I was sad to see that there was only 4 episodes.

For fans of Archeology and History, this is a must see.
