"[...]

Ancient Warriors was a documentary series that aired on TLC/Discovery a few years ago. It contained great information on warriors such as the janissaries, the assyrians, the roman legionaires, and more. This set appears to include the episodes for the following: The Huns, The Spartans, The Ninja, The Celts, The Sioux, The Sammurai, The Vikings, and The Zulu. That's 8 episodes in all. This isnt the whole series though as it noticabley is missing: The romans, The Assyrians, The monks of shoa lin, the goths, the janissaries, The Macedonians/Alexanders army, the knights templar, and several more that I cannot think of.

The series was very well shot and featured great information and dramatic naration. There was a lot of depth in a short time span I believe 30 min per episode. It really was fantastic for anyone interested in history, military history, or the people covered by the series. I LOVED it. There is a box set similar to this one available on VHS from the discovery channel store but it varies in the episodes contained. I own that one, and it contains: The huns, The Shao Lin Monks, The Sammurai, The Goths, The Vikings, The Janissaries, The romans, The Spartans and the Macedonians. So while they share some episodes they both seem to offer ones the other doesnt have. I wish they'd release the WHOLE series as a DVD set!!

In short this is a rare and hard to find series that is FANTASTIC for anyone arm chair historians of all sorts. Teachers should note that they work well especially well in a classroom environment because they will likely catch the interest of students and are short yet very informative and accurate."
The other reviewers are insane

"Hello, after reading the comments from the apparently misinformed other reviewers i just had to come and write my own mini-review, this series is television documentary series run on the discovery channel about specific types of "ancient warriors" the episodes that i have cover the celts, vikings, romans, egyptians, assyrians, spartans and macedonians. The series overall is excellent, well worth watching if your a history buff interested in ancient warfare, the other reviewers babbling about machine guns and skeletons are just very confused and must be reviewing the wrong product.

The series goes quite into depth about tactics, dress and leadership of the different armies with colorful re-enactments from the period, overall a good buy."
