Best Video Courses on Ancient Greek and Roman History

The world is a large beautiful place with a lot of great history to explore. You can now do it from the comfort of your own home and learn from some of the greatest professors on the subjects discussed. You can explore the sites of ancient Greece and Rome and get insights that may only be available via the audio-visual learning channels. Having personally gone through many of the courses explored, I find them a great learning tool. History comes alive with beautiful illustrations, footage and commentary, along with insight of great minds from great universities worldwide. This can be a lot more fascinating that just reading a book on the subject. Also, these are college-level courses that can be stopped, reviewed and even replayed, unlike in the real world. What I also enjoy about the courses listed is that they come with a course book that has easy-to-follow outlines so that you can learn via reading also.

When you immerse yourself into history, you develop more and more of a profound appreciation of it. The course below have a link to the original website where you can buy the courses directly from the company, and an amazon link that you may find the course used or new at a discount. I found that when I bought one, I started receiving their catalog and promotions via the mail for buying them at a discount in the future. If you are getting it used, you may want to make sure they provide a booklet with it, which many do. These are great additions to your library and a compliment to ancient coin collecting, and of course are amazing educational tools for the youth and adult. The additional benefit that you get if you get it directly from the company, is that with a DVD purchase you may also have the internet streaming version for free to watch on the go.

Enjoy this wonderful list I put together for you.
