Disappointing Treatment of Ancient Empires
Serge J. Van Steenkiste | Atlanta, GA | 04/23/2007
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Secrets of Ancient Empires collection is a disappointing 5 DVD-set compared to say, Secrets of Archeology. Secrets of Archeology, a six-DVD set, introduces viewers to twenty-seven amazing archeological sites spread over Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Europe.

Secrets of Ancient Empires tries to cover too much ground in a very short time. The running time of each DVD is just 50 minutes. The series successively covers the first civilizations, cities, merchants, armies, and beliefs. The computer-generated imagery used is repetitive and does not seem to be state-of-the-art. Some DVDs like The First Cities feature some lousy acting that makes watching it a chore.

To summarize, this DVD-set can best be forgotten due to its superficial treatment of key subjects that should allow viewers to better understand what they owe to the ancient empires.
