Ancient Worlds Documentary – Return of the King

Return of the King

Richard Miles traces Alexander the Great’s battle-scarred route through Turkey, Syria and Lebanon to Egypt and ultimately to the western Punjab, Pakistan, where he discovers fascinating traces of a city where Greek west and Buddhist east were united in an intriguing new way. It was Alexander’s successors, the Hellenistic Kings, who had to make sense of the legacy of this legendary adventurer. By knuckling down to the hard graft of politics, taxation and public works, they created something far more enduring than a mere legend – they built a civilization.
