Educational Videos on Ancient Rome Posted by kunthra on Mar 27, 2010 in Uncategorized
Interested about ancient Rome? One way to learn more about Rome is to read about it. The other way is to watch a video about it.
Ever heard about Ancient Rome: The Rise and Fall of an Empire? It’s about a 2006 BBC docudrama that looks at key points in the history of ancient Rome. If you like your documentaries done in chronological order, you might hate this one. However, in my own opinion, the series is one of the more interesting videos on ancient Rome. Here’s a clip:
There’s also a documentary by PBS called : The Roman Empire in the First Century. If you’re looking for more than just a brief overview of the important players in ancient Roman history, then perhaps this isn’t for you.
To be fair to all the documentary production teams, it’s hard to find the balance between making the content interesting, riveting to a mainstream audience that may not be particularly interested in ancient Roman history. On that note, anyone have any other good documentaries on ancient Rome that they can recommend?
