Very well done movie. A pleasure to watch. I would recommend this movie for all to see. No fast forwarding on this one. A++ DVD

This series is so engrossing as an intellectual puzzle and detective story that you almost forget that you're learning things. On the face of it, this is a classroom lecture, but in reality, this is an archaeological action/thriller. Watch the first 30 minutes and you won't be able to stop.

"By 1100BC - the glory had gone. The last of the great palaces like Mycenae were abandoned. Their bureaucracies vanished and with them....literacy itself."

"The first Myceneans ever seen by modern eyes, on Schliemann's frescoes, were among the last to disappear."

"But if it was an earthquake that gave the Greeks the key to Troy, isn't it possible that they left an idol in the image of the earthquake God, Poseidon, a wooden horse?"
