In this documentary, in the form of satellite map, you can zoom in close and see the actual ancient and other ruins of Europe. Thus, you can actually see the palaces, forts, churches, ancient villages, castles, mounds, etc. There are over 250 sites in this map. For example, ruins like the Coliseum and Forum, Herculaneum, Mycenae, Plaosnik, Stonehenge, and lesser known ruins. And each site links to a Wikipedia page so you can read about the location.

The locations were determined by the following:

• Wikipedia’s List of archaeological sites by country • Wikipedia’s Lists of World Heritage Sites in Europe • And online searches
