"The lost cities and temples of the ancient world are stunningly re-created with three-dimensional, computer-generated images in this marvelous antiquity lesson aimed at students and history buffs alike. A follow-up to an earlier series, the programs cover Carthage, the Roman Empire, Biblical Lands, and the Seven Wonders of the World. Expert analysis through both interviews and narration provides a context for presenting information on the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Temple of Artemis, Roman roads, numerous statues, and various architectural marvels. Modern footage showing the remains of these once-grand engineering feats lends a somewhat melancholy air while reinforcing sheer wonder at the ancient accomplishments."- Booklist
