Reviews & Awards

“The primary strength of Great Empires of the Past is its consistent use of images of genuine art, artefacts, and monuments to illustrate each empire. The editing and visual style is fresh and lively, but does not obscure the iconic images …. Provides concise yet insightful introductions to key concepts as well as geographical and historical contexts…. Teachers will find the 2- to 3-minute segments useful as writing prompts, discussion prompts, or simply a way to add variety to classroom instruction and reach auditory and visual learners. Each segment could easily be used independently of all the others. Recommended.” — Educational Media Reviews Online
