  •  Quite a lot of documentaries... (1+ / 0-)

    ... from BBC are on YouTube.  Several (my favorites) incorporate forensic anthropology with archaeological info, especially those who dig into old bones and artifacts..., and some can incorporate all of that with known history for the particular time period of the artifacts and bones.  Some are on language and the development and layering of English, for instance.

    Secrets of the Dead is on YouTube (PBS) - the one on the Plague and the modern people who inherited the CCR5 Delta 32 genes who are immune to getting the HIV virus, just as their ancestors were to the plague if they had two sets of the genes (with one they'd probably get the plague but not die from it; with both they didn't get it at all).

    I have files of links for Celts, Anglo-Saxons, Vikings, Roman Britain, yet other files for historical periods I like..., et cetera and so on and so forth.

    Old Nature shows from PBS are on YouTube, too, and there are several I enjoy, especially the ones on dogs and cats, plus African wildlife.

    In any case, do a search on your favorite topics and see what turns up.
