Overview

This program is the first episode in a five volume series that investigates the ancient empires of the world, including those of Babylon, Greece, and Rome. The myriad beliefs and practices of these places of antiquity are presented with archival materials, art, re-enactments, on site visits, and interviews with scholars. This program considers how civilizations were first organized.

The interdependency of such communities were the starting point for the first civilizations in Africa and Europe. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter
