    Castles Throughout Time - Travel Video.
    Goldhil Home Media. 5 Volume, Gift Boxed Set. VHS. "Castles Throughout Time" visits and explores the history behind castles along the shores of the Mediterranean built between the second century B.C. through the nineteenth century A.D. This beautiful series combines stunning photography, rich textures, captivating stories and vivid reenactments to provide a visual ambiance and bring to life a magnificent era. Castles Throughout Time is a series about the history of castles from their origins until the present. The Castles were the product of European Medieval society, and they developed and expanded throughout the Mediterranean region. Occupying more than 500 kilometers of the eastern coast of Spain, it is not surprising that the Valencia region was a popular entry point for invaders from the Mediterranean. This beautiful five volume set includes: VOLUME ONE Sagunto, City of Discord It was here where the Romans first entered Spain, the Old Hispania, after the heroic resistance of the inhabitants of the city of Sagunto, in second century B.C., against the armies of the Carthaginian General Hannibal. Allah Is Great! Upon arrival on the Valencia coast in the year 713 A.D., the Muslims built the first castles in the Spanish Peninsula. The signing of a pact with the Visigoth governor, Theodomirus, facilitated the relocation of the Muslims. However, the conditions of the pact were not agreed upon until the Muslim's arrival to Valencia. VOLUME TWO Denia, The Guardian of the Day In 8th century, Hispania would be known as Al Andalus and would reach its golden age between the 10th and 11th centuries. Such was the power of the small kingdom of Denia, that its control of trade reached out over the whole western Mediterranean. Its lord and master, the brilliant Muyahid, in his seaboard castle, surrounded himself with a court of wise men, intellectuals and poets formed by Muslims, Christians and Jews from far and wide. From Africa They Will Come The expansionist drives of the Feudal European kingdoms, as well as the conquests of the legendary "The Cid", spelled the end of the Almoravids and later the Almohades. The country of Al-Andalus became part of a vast Muslim empire with its capital in Marrekesh, Morocco. These fanatical Islamic warriors reinforced the castles along the Valencia coast in a desperate bid to ward off the inevitable. Don Jaime For Valencia The Almoravides and the Almohades were clearly not strong enough to stop the feudal knights. Under the auspices of Aragonese King James I, with the church solidly behind him, they conquered these lands in less than a decade. Founding and colonizing in the year 1238, the new kingdom of Valencia became what is now the community of Valencia. VOLUME THREE Lions in War, Sheep in the Cloister In this episode, the history of the castles is directly linked to the origin and development of the old Templar, Hospitaller, Santiago and Montesa Knight Orders, who gave their lives to defend the sacred grounds of Christian Jerusalem. The Dance of Death "There was a time when life revolved around the castle, from it governed the nobility, and above it, only God's heaven extended." This documentary is a journey through the Middle Ages. All the words and opinions expressed in it have been reproduced from the texts of the period. The words speak for themselves. Belts of Stone From the destruction of the biblical city of Jericho to the Roman Empire from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century, cities fortified by circles of stone were to be silent witnesses of the evolution of mankind. The guardians of the progress of society. VOLUME FOUR Once Upon a Time A trip through time, through the mythology that surrounds the castles and their habitants. The castle is intrinsically connected to fantasy. Even a part of a tower or wall is sufficient to conjure up in the visitor's mind, a grandiose world of tournaments, princes, witches, secret passageways and dungeons. Sentinels of the Sea The expansion of the Turkish Empire and the possible loss of control of the Mediterranean in the 16th century led the Spanish Emperor Philip II to order the building of watchtowers and fortifications to defend the coasts. This strategy was to be repeated along the coasts of Central American and the Philippines. VOLUME FIVE Iron and the Fire The first conflicts between the emerging English Empire and the French were fought in the Mediterranean against the backdrop of an imperial Spain in decline. A once glorious empire was now having to defend itself in international conflicts like the War of Succession in the 18th century, or the War of Independence against the French in the 19th century. Travelers and Fortresses Castles played a vital role in times of war and peace. The arrival of the Industrial Revolution and new strategies in modern warfare led to the abandonment of these ancient fortresses, testament of a time that is no more. The portraits of the region drawn by travelers of days gone by have helped us to understand and appreciate the evolution of the castles and the landscape that surrounds them. 5 Hours, 35 minutes

    The Mycenaeans - Travel Video.
    DVD. Legacy of Ancient Civilizations. 30 Minutes. There were many interesting and important civilizations in the Mediterranean region in ancient times, but the Mycenaeans were especially fortunate in one way. Their legends and deeds became the subjects of the finest works of literature to be handed down from antiquity -- Homer's Iliad and Odyssey and the dramas of the great Greek playwrights. In addition, archaeologists have unearthed the remains of the great fortified cities of the Mycenaeans. Together, these sources, both literary and archaeological, have allowed us to get an unusually intimate look at this impressive culture. What we see is an age of powerful military dynasties that ruled large areas of land, conducted trade, and established industries. Their influence reached as far as Egypt and Sicily. And although their civilization, like so many others, eventually crumbled, their legends lived on to form the cornerstone of the literature of the Western world.
