History offers its viewers a broad overview of the Ancient Roman society during the Roman Empire. To its credit, History introduces its audience not only to the deeds and words of great men such as Augustus, Nero, and Constantine I, who went to posterity, but also to the whereabouts of ordinary Ancient Romans who sank into oblivion under the relentless pressure of time. Superb photography, well-done reenactments, judicious use of drawings and movie clips, interviews with leading Ancient Roman historians, and a well-paced narration prove once more that History can live up to the legitimate expectations that it creates. In summary, this DVD set will fall in the good graces of any history buff who wants to know more about a civilization that still permeates the Western world.
