Ancient Worlds (2010)
Tuesday 23rd November 2010
Ancient Worlds is sumptuous journey back through time to unlock the secrets of lost civilisations and how they have made us what we are today.
This fascinating DVD takes us through spectacular landscapes to the most important sites of the ancient worlds. It takes us on a quest to uncover the mysteries and wonders of long lost civilisations. The men, women and children have long since vanished. But they've left behind many thousands of clues of what their lives were like.
Archaeologist and historian Dr Richard Miles of Cambridge University travels back 6,000 years to the first cities to discover the roots of some of our most fundamental concepts: politics and war, trade and technology, justice and freedom. But where did these ideas really come from?
With the help of a cast of engaging archaeologists, historians and forensic experts, we uncover a treasure trove of exquisite artefacts, hidden buildings, ancient drawings and writings. There is evidence of mysterious human sacrifices, cannibalism, social upheaval and political intrigue, opening a unique window into the daily lives of the ancient people who shaped the civilisation we live in today.
Combing stunning photography with archaeology, artefacts and forensics, this DVD will bring the ancient worlds back to life and is available to buy from the 6th December 2010 from 2entertain.
