Great fun History
28 August 2013 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

This is a great way to look into great history stories. The premise is that viewers send in their personal artifacts that the show's experts investigate. This PBS show is reminiscent of Antiques Roadshow except that it's much more in depth and they don't talk about money. Both of which is a plus in my view.

The experts are well spoken and photogenic. It has an infinite number of possible stories to tell. And so far, it hasn't run out of good stories. Although some artifacts seem more of a setup. Some of the viewers seem to already know what they are sending in. I'm sure that there is a lot of TV reconstruction around each find. That's a minor problem. I still find this a very compelling watch. It's a great way to see history from the ground up taking the small pieces to examine the big events.
