LOST KINGDOMS OF AFRICA

LOST KINGDOMS OF AFRICA

Discover four of Africa's great forgotten civilizations. Follow art historian Gus Casely-Hayford through modern Africa on a quest to understand the spectacular monuments of Nubia; the mysterious ruins of Great Zimbabwe; the magnificent monasteries of Lalibela, carved out of solid rock in Ethiopia; and the art and technology of ancient Benin. Drawing from silent objects of the past and combining geography, archaeology, and anthropology, these spellbinding episodes reach back to before written history, expose realms that rivaled Egypt, and cast new light on a little-known part of our world's cultural heritage. Bonus features include a 16-page viewer's guide, biographies of prominent pre-colonial Africans, and profiles of Sudan, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, and Nigeria today. Grades 7 and up. SDH subtitles. Color. Total time: 216 minutes. BBC. ©2009.
