Taking a look at how different societies are advancing at different rates on the same date in the distant past.

I wrote the original script a couple years ago.

Although this is a bit different than anything Ive done lately, its something I wanted to do before moving on to anything else. I realize that showing actual archaeological artifacts and ancient ruins is unfortunately inevitably boring. So to keep the interest level at least as high as a documentary film strip shown in a classroom, Ive decided to use classic movie scenes, -specially selected and cleverly edited- to look like the things Im talking about. On all of my videos, people ask me where certain scenes came from. So Ive decided to list those references here:

Conan the Barbarian (1982, Arnold Swartzenegger)
Highlander (1986, Clancy Brown)
Braveheart (1995, Mel Gibson)
Hercules (1983, Lou Ferrigno)
10,000 BC (2008, Steven Strait)
One Million B.C. (1940, Carole Landis)
One Million Years BC (1966, Raquel Welch)
Caveman (1981, Ringo Starr)
Clan of the Cave Bear (1986, Daryl Hannah)
Clash of the Titans (1981, Harry Hamlin)
Quest for Fire (1981, Rae Dawn Chong)
The New World (2005, Q'orianka Kilcher)
The Golden Voyage of Sinbad (1974, Tom Baker)
Apocolypto (2006, Rudy Youngblood)
Lord of the Rings, Two Towers (2002, Andy Serkis)
The Scorpion King (2002, The Rock)
Akasha, Queen of the Damned (2002, Aaliyah)
Life of Brian (1979, Monty Python)
The Gods Must Be Crazy (1980, N!xau)
