University of Illinois Professor Jennifer Tobin fascinates with her Modern Scholar lectures on the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The listening experience is rich, gratifying, and conveys splendid images. In an enthusiastic conversational tone, Tobin delves into the historical and social contexts that produced these sites. Her crisp, clear enunciations help to shed light on what has been archaeologically proven, what are the educated guesses of ancient historians, and how we can view their mythology today. These lectures are highly recommended for anyone who is planning to visit any of the famed sites as they provide much more information than a cursory tour. The production's accompanying 80-page reference guide features photos, artistic renderings, and a list of suggested readings, Websites of interest, and even thoughtful questions to mull over after listening to each of the 14 lectures.
