"My first DVDs or videos for that matter on Ancient Civilazations and i must say it was wonderful and really got me pumped up about Ancient history.It Cover great detail in to what was once there and how it looked and then how it it today and doesnt bore you for a second.Questar is really the Leader in these series. Worth every penny for the set. i wasnt really all that excited for Mexico or Egypt i was into Athens and rome and man this turned it around and i got reaklly interested in it so if your looking historical side of these stories then pick this up youll be happy ya did, no wonder why these tapes got so many awards."

"The condition of this used product was excellent -- my issue is with the product itself. I thought I could use this as an educational supplement. (I am a teacher.) However, unless I want to be forcibly chased from my classroom, I will not be subjecting my students to any of the dvds. There are certainly moments in each dvd that are engaging, but these are few."
