Superb
8 October 1999 | by Hawkeye-53See all my reviews

Very informative and entertaining. Tells of the major ancient civilizations in chronological order. Wondefuly made to be able to show to middle school students and be entertaining for adults. For a "Law & Order" fan to see (or rather hear) the star of his favorite show is wondeful in a social studies class. A perfect 10 documentary.
