A Nearly-Perfect Overview of the Ancient History
20 November 2013 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

I felt compelled to write a review after reading the other two on this site.

So, to begin, the series tackles the mammoth task of explaining, briefly, the history of human civilization from the rise of cities in Mesopotamia through the dissolution of the Roman Empire. As such, generalizations are mandatory, and there is nothing strange about them, because every historical synthesis has to resort to them, which renders the other two reviews on this site useless.

The most fascinating aspect of the series is the amount of individual footage, it is just amazing. Unlike most documentaries, who tend to dwell on one particular piece of footage in order to cut the costs, this one fits as much of different things from different countries as possible.

All in all, this is a great series for those interested in the ancient history, it works as a sort of illustrated history of the ancient world that is both useful for the general public and the experts alike.
