This 3-part PBS series features stunning visuals of Ireland and Irish castles, ruins, monasteries, standing stones, beehive huts, metalwork and illuminated manuscripts. We view close-up, dozens of ancient sites in Ireland. The story is told through interviews with archeologists and historians. Part 1 covers the ancient Celts and legends; part 2 covers St. Patrick and the dawn of Christianity in Ireland; and part 3 covers the Viking invasions and early Irish kings. The DVD includes "Over Ireland" which gives the viewer a sense of flying with its aerial views of coast and castles.
