"Highly Recommended. The production is excellent, part historical and part mystical; the tone is low key but exciting; also a wonderful introduction to the study of archaeology." -EMRO Review
Nearly 2000 years ago the Romans destroyed the ancient city of Yodefat, Israel, during the first Jewish Revolt against Rome. Today, because Yodefat was never resettled, the archaeological excavation of the walled city, thanks to the tireless campaign of district archaeologist Mordechai Aviam, yielded a nearly pristine site. This compelling, historic documentary, narrated by Academy Award winning actress Anne Bancroft, uses these artifacts, along with state-of-the-art digital imaging techniques, to piece together the story of the battle which inflamed a six-year war that helped change the course of Western civilization. Produced by WXXI Public Broadcasting Council. 03/10DE Closed-Captioned JSCA 60 min.
