This is a different kind of travel DVD where your guide is a highly educated and experienced archaeologist. He lectures while the DVD is showing videos of the places, plus there are maps and aerial views. I have learned so much while being completely entertained. This is really wonderful for armchair travelers. But people who are planning a trip to these places will get so much more out of it if they watch these DVDs first. I know this is not for everyone- I happen to be enthralled with ancient ruins and I am thinking of buying these for myself.
