Ancient Egypt - Life and Death in the Valley of the Kings | Part 1 | Free Documentary History

Ancient Egypt - Life and Death in the Valley of the Kings - Part 1 | History Documentary

Watch 'Ancient Egypt - Life and Death in the Valley of the Kings - Part 2' here:

Egypt captivates us like few other ancient civilizations – but what was it like to actually live there as an ordinary person, 3500 years ago?

Egyptologist Dr Joann Fletcher goes on a fascinating journey in search of people like us – not the great Pharaohs but the ordinary people who built and populated this incredible ancient civilization – creating a remarkable way of life and an extraordinary way of death.

At the heart of this series are Kha and Meryt, an architect and his wife who lived just outside the Valley of the Kings. They left behind a treasure trove of information; their extraordinary tomb, full of objects from their lives and deaths - from make-up to death-masks, loaves of bread to life-like figurines, even the tools Kha used at work in the royal tombs. Joann Fletcher uses this to travel into the remarkable world of these Ancient Egyptians, both in life and the afterlife.

In this first episode we explore life in Ancient Egypt; the tightly packed houses where ordinary people lived, the village that was their home, how they dressed and what they ate. Joann discovers their love poetry, their enthusiasm for interior design and what it was like to work in the most famous cemetery on earth, the Valley of the Kings.

22. Fascists

European Civilization, 1648-1945 (HIST 202)

While Nazi Germany's crimes were unprecedented, Adolf Hitler himself was in many respects a typical figure. An idle youth, of seemingly mediocre talents, his political career and passionate hatreds were formed by the experience of World War I. The rise of fascism in Germany, as elsewhere, must be understood in the context of a postwar climate of resentment and instability. Germany's economic crisis, in particular, led the middle classes to support National Socialism well before any other group. This resentment would find a ready outlet in the form of increasingly persecuted minority populations, above all the Jews. In considering Nazism against the backdrop of a more general wave of extreme rightwing and fascist political sentiment, it is important to note that the policies of the Third Reich were not only known to but also endorsed by the majority of the German population.

Hitler's Second Book: Ideas That Were Too Provocative for Publication (2003)

Gerhard Ludwig Weinberg (born 1 January 1928) is a German-born American diplomatic and military historian noted for his studies in the history of World War II. About the book:

Weinberg currently is the William Rand Kenan, Jr. Professor Emeritus of History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He has been a member of the history faculty at UNC-Chapel Hill since 1974. Previously he served on the faculties of the University of Michigan (1959–1974) and the University of Kentucky (1957–1959).

Weinberg's early masterpiece was the two-volume history of Hitler's diplomatic preparations for war: The Foreign Policy of Hitler's Germany (1970 and 1980; republished 1994). In this work, Weinberg portrayed a Hitler committed to his ideology, no matter how inane or stupid it might seem to others, and therefore as a leader determined to use foreign policy to effect a specific set of goals. Weinberg thus countered others, such as British historian A.J.P. Taylor, who had argued in The Origins of the Second World War (1962) that Hitler had acted like a traditional statesman in taking advantage of the weaknesses of foreign rivals. The first volume of The Foreign Policy of Hitler's Germany received the George Louis Beer Prize of the American Historical Association in 1971.

Weinberg's attention then turned to the Second World War. He published dozens of articles on the war and volumes of collected essays such as World in the Balance: Behind the Scenes of World War II (1981). All such work was preparation for the release in 1994 of his 1000-page one-volume history of the Second World War, A World at Arms: A Global History of World War II. Weinberg continued his studies of the World War II era even after the publication of his general history by examining the conceptions of World War II's leaders about the world they thought they were fighting to create. It was published in 2005 as Visions of Victory: The Hopes of Eight World War II Leaders. In this book, Weinberg looked at what eight leaders were hoping to see after the war ended. The eight leaders profiled were Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, General Hideki Tōjō, Chiang Kai-shek, Joseph Stalin, Winston Churchill, General Charles de Gaulle, and Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Weinberg has continued to be a harsh critic of those who claim that Operation Barbarossa was a preventive war forced on Hitler. In a very hostile review of Ernst Topitsch's book Stalin's War, Weinberg called those who promote the preventive war thesis as believers in fairy tales.[12] In 1996, Weinberg was somewhat less harsh than in his review of Topitsch's book, but still very critical in his assessment of the Czech historian R.C. Raack's book Stalin's Drive to the West (which did not accept the preventive war thesis, but argued that Soviet foreign policy was far more aggressive than many other historians would accept, and Western leaders too pliant in their dealings with Stalin).[13]

In the globalist versus continentalist debate, concerning whether Hitler had ambitions to conquer the entire world or merely the continent of Europe, Weinberg takes a globalist view, arguing Hitler had plans for world conquest. On the question of whether Hitler intended to murder Europe's Jews before coming to power, Weinberg takes an intentionalist position, arguing that Hitler had formulated ideas for the Holocaust by the time he wrote Mein Kampf. In a 1994 article, Weinberg strongly criticized the American functionalist historian Christopher Browning for arguing that the decision to launch the Final Solution to the Jewish Question was taken in September–October 1941.[14] In Weinberg's view, July 1941 was the more probable date[14] In the same article Weinberg praised the work of the American historian Henry Friedlander for arguing that the origins of the Holocaust can be traced to the Action T4 program, which began in January 1939[15] Finally, Weinberg strongly praised the thesis put forward by the American historian Richard Breitman that planning for the Shoah began during the winter of 1940-41, but argued that Breitman missed what Weinberg argued was a crucial point, that because the T4 program had generated public protests, the Einsatzgruppen massacres of Jews in the Soviet Union were intended as a sort of trial run to gauge reaction of the German people to genocide.

Dinosaurs - On the Trail of Prehistory | Ancient History Documentary

Watch 'The Last Day of the Dinosaurs' here:

The discovery of a remarkable set of dinosaur tracks in Obernkirchen, Northern Germany, sent waves through the international paleontology community. The tracks came from the Deinonychosaur, a fierce feathered carnivore, and had only previously been found in America and Asia. Experts from around the world flocked to Obernkirchen, speculating that Northern Germany may have been an active centre of evolution for dinosaurs.

We follow paleontologist Annette Richter and her team as they attempt to reconstruct the lives of these giant lizards. With the help of 3D animation, this film re-creates the world of the dinosaurs and bring them back to life.

Why Hitler didn’t trust his generals | Schleicher & the Fall of the Weimar Republic

Some believe that Hitler's distrust of his generals, and his constant attempts to control them, are evidence of his 'madness'. This is the result of purely looking at the military operations and not understanding the political side of the equation. To explain this, in this documentary we will explore the situation in the last years of the Weimar Republic, see the conflict between Hitler and Kurt von Schleicher (a conservative army officer), see how similar or dis-similar their goals were, and figure out the reason why Hitler didn't trust his generals.

History Theory 101

- - - - -


History isn’t as boring as some people think, and my goal is to get people talking about it. I also want to dispel the myths and distortions that ruin our perception of the past by asking a simple question - “But is this really the case?”. I have a 2:1 Degree in History and a passion for early 20th Century conflicts (mainly WW2). I’m therefore approaching this like I would an academic essay. Lots of sources, quotes, references and so on. Only the truth will do.

This video is discussing events or concepts that are academic, educational and historical in nature. This video is for informational purposes and was created so we may better understand the past and learn from the mistakes others have made.
