Another good one...

In recent years, Monty Pythoner Terry Jones has created a wonderful niche for himself on television. His historical documentaries are fantastic--highly original, fascinating and a bit funny. He's managed to re-examine and breath life into such topics as the Crusades, life for the average Roman, the Middle Ages--among others. Here with "Ancient Inventions", Jones is back with a short series (only three episodes) all about ancient technology. His purpose--to show folks of old WEREN'T stupid and their advances led to the advances of today.

"War and Conflict" is about the history of aggression and the technology of warfare. His contention, once again, is that what we have today is based on ideas many millennia old concepts. Weapons such as bows, crossbows, Greek Fire and relay races(!?) are discussed and their connection with today's weapons is illustrated. Interesting and well worth seeing.
