Through spectacular re-creations, beautiful location footage and 3-D graphic models, students will discover how ancient peoples lived, ate, dressed and worked. These civilizations were multifaceted, each with unique leaders, systems of government, trade, religion and culture. By exploring archaeological sites and artifacts, art, architecture and writings, students will understand how historians have come to know about life many centuries ago and how these civilizations still influence our lives today. Join archaeologist Arizona Smith and his young detective-in-training and explore ancient Africa, China, Egypt, Greece, Mesopotamia, Rome and the civilizations of the ancient Aegean, Inca and Maya. In Ancient Aztec Empire and Ancient Aztec: The Fall of the Empire, visit present-day Mexico to look back in time at this majestic civilization.
