Great series on history!
2 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this series which aired on PBS. The series covers much of the history around each Myth/Hero. The travels of Mr. Wood, related artifacts explained, and the footage seen in the series are a wonderful addition! Definitely recommended for history buffs, AND for classroom presentation to students. This is a very good series for everyone, really. The stories are well explained and shown on maps, so you don't need to be an expert on history or geography to understand and appreciate this series.

The music/soundtrack is excellent and very well done!

My only disappointment is that there aren't more episodes.
