Bring history alive through 2,000 glorious works of art accompanied by superbly performed music and insightful narration. The series presents nine great eras of civilization as seen through the government, social life, religion, and artwork of each period, extending from ancient Greece to the 20th century. Animated maps and timelines help students clearly define the places and periods being discussed. The live introduction, in addition to establishing continuity between programs, encourages students to focus on the link between past and present and identify the historical and artistic influences from previous ages that surround them today. The comprehensive teacher's guides identify all art used in the programs and include suggested uses for history, art, and music classes, pre- and post-viewing questions and activities, History through Art projects, historical background information, biographies of artists, narration scripts, and up-to-date recommended reading lists.
