Immerse yourself in the exciting and dangerous world of the ancient Greeks and their gods with this invaluable collection of documentaries from HISTORY. A comprehensive selection of programs offers viewers a detailed look at ancient Greece through its most pivotal figures and conflicts, from the human frailties of its gods and goddesses to archeological evidence supporting their mythology; from the legendary city of Delphi and its world-famous oracle to the brutal standoff at the “Gates of Fire,” where 300 Spartans held off the Persian army.

Filled with stunning reenactments, archival footage, and expert testimony, ANCIENT GREECE: GODS AND BATTLES pulls together some of the most intriguing aspects of this epic civilization, including the mythic and monumental Greek deities and the artwork they inspired; the legendary story of “the face that launched a thousand ships” – Helen of Troy – and the bloody 10-year siege that followed her alleged kidnapping; and the strategic brilliance of Alexander the Great’s final campaign.

ANCIENT GREECE: GODS AND BATTLES includes 6 documentaries on 5 DVDs:
DISC 1: Gods and Goddesses
DISC 2: In Search of History: The Greek Gods / Oracle at Delphi
DISC 3: Last Stand of the 300
DISC 4: Decisive Battles: Marathon / Decisive Battles: Thermopylae / Troy: The Passion of Helen
DISC 5: Battles BC: Judgment Day at Marathon / Battles BC: Alexander: Lord of War
