Each episode of this interesting series showcases historically significant residences in the Western world. From understanding the unique architectural design of Thomas Jefferson's Monticello, to learning more about the purpose behind royal and imperial residences like France's Fontainebleau and Britain's Hampton Court, historians and curators discuss the role these structures play in our understanding of the people who lived in them, and the political, economic, and social circles in which they lived. It also highlights the opulence of each home, noting the distinctive details that make each residence unique. Granted, some of the darker histories of these places aren't discussed, but If you like history, architecture, or both, you'll find that The History Of Home Presents…History's Greatest Homes has something to offer.
