Product Overview

Each episode of -Ancient Discoveries: War in Ancient World explores ancient inventions and engineering that were previously believed to have been created only in modern times. Included in this special collection: the extraordinary ingenuity of the engineers who created some of the largest and most fearsome navies of the ancient world; the basic technologies discovered by ancient civilizations that led to the creation of the tank hundreds-maybe even thousands-of years ago; the mysteries of history's special agents from Japanese ninja assassins to the Italian genius who wrote secret messages on the inside of eggs; an investigation of the ancient worlds naval technology including lethal grenades, covert attack equipment and toxic biological warfare. Military innovation is consistently at the cutting edge of technological advances, from apocalyptic skyscraper siege machines to ancient landmines and flamethrowers, most of today's lethal weapons owe their origins to the inventors of the ancient world. Battle through storms snowdrifts to the world's earliest known ski commandos, journey to Egypt to see how a tiny army beat off a major invasion force using farm animals and find out how the simple stirrup changed the entire course of history. Experts and archaeological digs reveal new evidence into these inventions. Inventions which will be then be reconstructed.

Editors Note
Note Though many instinctively type the world of antiquity as primitive, classical historians insist that this was not so - arguing that the ancestors of contemporary man demonstrated a cunning, at times fearsome comprehension of engineering and human logistics. This was particularly true in the military sphere, evidenced by the creation of massive, indomitable navies and armies, the origin of the modern tank millennia ago, and much more. The eight History Channel documentaries in this set explore the details belying such innovations. Subtopics include the development of Japanese ninja assassins, the extraordinary career of an Italian man who encoded cryptic messages on the insides of eggs, the employment of early grenades centuries ago, history's first ski commandos, and more. Producers obtained much of the information and reconstruct many of the details through sophisticated archaeological digs and discussions with classical historians.
