DVD's 1 & 2 - Topics: Egypt, Hittites, Assyria & Babylon.

David Down, presenter of the Digging Up The Past video and now DVD series, has devoted much of his life to the study of archaeology and Biblical history.

He is an experienced public lecturer and prolific writer. His works include the Archaeological Diggings magazine, the Diggings Newsletter, the Diggings series of three correspondence courses, the popular international radio series and the book Unwrapping the Pharaohs (see Resources - Books)  is his latest endeavour. David conducts an annual study tour of the Middle East. One such trip was captured on video and the result is this Digging Up the Past  DVD series.

Although this series was filmed on videotape around 1988, some of the places and archaeological points of interest featured can no longer be visited. Wars, political instability and increased security regulations, now deny travellers the chance to see first hand some of the fascinating archaeological evidence. Hence this is a valuable historical series that remains unique in its scope and presentation.
