Science and archeology show informative but a little dry.

Is It Any Good?

This interesting series highlights how scientists can use traditional discovery and modern animation techniques to create a better understanding of how iconic places unearthed over the centuries were built and used. It also tries to figure out why, in some cases, they were abandoned. While it's possible to offer many concrete details about engineering of these monuments, what they find often leads to more questions. Beautiful photography, dynamic imagery, and music are used to keep it all from sounding too dry. Nonetheless, if you're interested in archeology, history, or engineering, you'll find Unearthed's detailed explanations and discussions worth paying attention to.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
