Classical Archaeology of Ancient Greece and Rome
My children (Gus, 12 and Ria, 14) are really enjoying this series from the Teaching Company - I've been keeping one ear on it while doing computer work, but haven't had a chance to sit down and watch very much of it myself yet. We had trouble watching the first few lectures with a larger group as there was too much giggling over facial expressions and such. As a family, we've been loving it - he's engaging, passionate about his material and quite the story teller. There is a little bit of mature content (generally pretty delicately handled), but Gus and Ria skipped over a lecture (for now) that was tagged with a warning that it should previewed for children. I really appreciate (and respect) that the company had the forethought to consider that children might watch it and to give parents a heads-up.
