Excellent and Informative Box Set,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Discovery Channel - Ancient Egypt 14 Disc Collection [DVD] (DVD)
Here is what is in the box:
A 6 Part series called Ancient Egyptians presented by the excellent Egyptologist Bob Brier. His enthusiasm and knowledge of Ancient Egypt make this a joy to watch. He covers the lives of the Pharaohs Ramses the Great, Akhenaten, Tutankhamun, Hatshepsut, Sneferu & Cleopatra.
An excellent documentary on Imhotep who built the first pyramid.
A three part series called Pyramids, Mummies & Tombs that goes into great detail about the history of the Pyramids and burial In Ancient Egypt.
A three part series called Secrets of the Egyptians which go into detail about the mysteries behind Queen Nefertiti's life, the secrets revealed by studying the mummy of Ramses the Great and a study of all the female leaders of Ancient Egypt.
Finally there is a great documentary by Terry Jones of Monty Python fame called Hidden History of Egypt which goes into detail about the lives of the ordinary people living in Ancient Egypt.
The presentation is wonderful; the box set itself is great and actually very compact which was a relief as I was worried it might be massive since it is a 14 disc collection. To conclude this is a wonderful box set that has greatly increased my knowledge of Ancient Egypt; everything from the Pharaohs and the pyramids to the lives of the ordinary people of Ancient Egypt is covered. This 14 disc collection is a must have for anyone interested in Ancient Egypt.
