Summer Bump Not Slump: History Prep? Watch These

Getting Back to Roots

Documentaries and dramatic interpretations of history provide a different passage for the march of history to enter our minds. These are just a few very effective choices to angle in on historical periods. Some are historical fiction, some highlight the great historical minds of our times, and others are time machines that transport us into the past. Then, of course, there's always the History Channel.
