"As an archaeology student, I purchased this DVD to use as part of my research on flint knapping techinques. Aside from the sections on tool making, the rest of the DVD is informative and easy to understand. It would be a good program for high school teachers to use as an introduction to an archaeology or anthropology class."
Perfect for the High School teacher

"As a high school history teacher, I definitely include this DVD on my "must have" list. It keeps student interest...enough said? To a teacher, I know that's gold. I have had many positive reviews from past and present students about this one. However, keep it in perspective, it is what it is: a history video. Your students won't be asking for a burned copy, but they will learn from it.
After the unfortunate popularity of Hollywood's "10,000 BC" (a movie so horrible it makes every self-respecting history teacher cringe), this is heaven-sent. It paints a much more accurate picture of the time period, while being extremely relevant.
10,000 BC (History Channel) is fast enough paced to allow students to view the whole DVD, but I would recommend showing it in clips to maximize its impact. Some of my favorite parts include their hunting tactics, ability to survive prehistoric animals, and the segment explaining several theories as to how people "settled" the North American continent.
It's worth the investment to your teaching collection."
