There’s almost 11 hours worth of Egyptology fun in the 6 discset from history. If watched a disc a day, you or your children could have almost a week worth of Egypt fun and education. I’ve seen a fair amount of Egyptian artifacts in museums and galleries around the world. Despite having read a bit about each piece I’ve seen in a museum, I couldn’t really get a feel for how Egyptian history shaped the history of the rest of the world, until I watched this set of DVDs, which retails for about $50.
Although you can watch the DVDs sequentially, another way to do so would be to choose your favourite times in Egyptian history and watch those ones first. The 6 disc set shares in reenactments, conversations with experts in their fields, and narrations the technology, religion, culture, wars and peace that unified this civilization for over 3,000 years.
