Just finished watching the prog. I thought it was very good. I don't think it was a huge surprise to discover the ancients were more sophisticated than had previously been thought. As time goes on we will probably find they were even more advanced. All in all, well worth a watch.

Yes, it drew together the work of dedicated archaeologists over the past decade. I thought it was very good too and will watch it again soon as have recorded it.

I do also recommend Bettany Hughes's three part series which tonight was about Confucius. I enjoyed watching Bettany appear to effortlessly pursue her own scholarly yet accessible style of presentation. Apparently Confucius had little time for women.
