This review is from: Meet The Romans Presented by Mary Beard As Seen On BBC2 [DVD] (DVD)
Rome as you might see it walking down the street there 2000 years ago. Dr. Beard translates many layers of historical and archeological research into a text that is informative and accessible. While entertaining, this series also informs and, for me, changes and enriches ones understanding of ancient Rome. This program forces us to rethink many of the ideas of Rome we've received over the years. Great stuff!
