Cleopatra: The Rest of The Story
Have you discovered Top Documentaries? Many history and science documentaries are available for free online at this website. Great for home school or for anyone who loves history. I particularly want to recommend Cleopatra: Portrait of a Killer. Did you know that Cleopatra sealed her alliance with Mark Antony by having his men kill her younger sister Arsinoe in the sanctuary of the Temple of Artemis. This act of desecration caused outrage throughout the Roman world. If you enjoy this documentary, you may also enjoy Steven Saylor's novel's Judgement of Caesar and Triumph of Caesar. Saylor has a new book coming June 5th --The Seven Wonders. In the book, the 18 year-old Gordianus embarks on a tour of the Seven Wonders of the ancient World and finds his career as a finder (detective).
