Ancient Inventions is a BBC documentary series presented by Terry Jones, looking at great inventions of the ancient world and their influences in our modern world. The series consists of three episodes, which look at inventions we think of as unique to modern times when really they have been around for centuries and many even longer. The first episode City Life looks at the ancient inventions of city life such as skyscrapers and aqueduct. the second episode Sex and Love explores the ancient use of make-up. And the third and final episode War and Conflict features the ancient weapons that to some degree have the connections with modern weapons.

Episode one explores the origins of our now familiar environment, from the invention of concrete, to city grid plans and monumental high-rise buildings.

After seeing the episode (duration 50 minutes) we can talk about it
