The Battle of Marathon between Athens and Persia was a defining moment in Western history. Produced by the History Channel.
This video can currently be found on youtube here:
Battles BC: Judgement Day at Marathon
The documentary is 44 minutes long and takes me approximately 60 minutes to complete when I pause to discuss and explain some of the questions the students are tasked with answering.
The students stay engaged with this fast-paced and exciting documentary which provides good explanations, maps, and diagrams.
