Comments about PBS NOVA: Secrets of the Parthenon DVD:

This is an outstanding example of the ability of modern technology to illuminate and illustrate history for students, young and old, of our roots in civilization. Beautifully done, almost as good as being there in person. And wonderful memories for those of us who have been there.

Comments about PBS NOVA: Secrets of the Parthenon DVD:

I had to buy this video because I wanted to see again and again the deceptions to the eye and perceptions the Parthenon exhibited. The math behind the columns was one of the top discoveries demonstrated in the video.
