Ancient Egypt and Greece DVD

This two-disc DVD includes five of the most popular Channel 4 educational series about the Ancient World. We explore Ancient Egypt, discovering the world of pyramids and mummies and comprehensive background information on a great civilisation. We also learn who the Ancient Greeks were? The programmes illustrate the legacy of Greek architecture, art and language, and explore Ancient Greek life and mythology. A Giant in Ancient Egypt tells the story of an extraordinary Italian, Giovanni Belzoni, who, in spite of his lack of training and education, made a succession of remarkable discoveries in Egypt. And finally, Maths From History explores the use of mathematics in the two ancient cultures, using colourful graphics to explain the mathematics and a strong narrative thread to bring the past to life.
