I came across this series when we were studying ancient Rome that really impressed me. It is not a documentary, it is historical fiction. The series tells the story of four friends from very different walks of life going through life in ancient Rome. Kids while watching can’t help but learn about ancient Roman daily life, what it was like to be a kid in ancient times, historical events, and even a word or two in Latin. The series can be purchased through Amazon. Unfortunately, it is in the European format. However, while I cannot play it on my dvd player I can play it on my laptop.
