ANCIENT ROME: This comprehensive selection of programs offers a detailed look at the magnificent Roman Empire. Travel the remarkable network of highways that helped forge and empire, or explore incredible ruins including the Tiber seaport of Ostia and the decadent palaces of Nero and Tiberius. Witness the devastation that an erupting Mount Vesuvius wreaked on Pompeii, discover how Constantine converted to Christianity and embraced religious tolerance, and learn how Roman technological advances and social policy helped maintain an enduring empire that lasted through to the final flickering flames of Roman glory under the Emperor Justinian, before its eventual decline.

ANCIENT GREECE: GODS AND BATTLES: Take a detailed look at ancient Greece through its most pivotal figures and conflicts, from the human frailties of its gods and goddesses and the archaeological evidence supporting their mythology. Explore the ancient city of Delphi and its famous oracle, and witness the legendary battle at Thermopylae, where 300 Spartans held off the might of the Persian army. Relive the story of Helen of Troy, whose incredible beauty is said to have caused the Trojan War, and investigate the strategic brilliance of Alexander the Greats final military campaign.
