What led the great powers of antiquity to install themselves on the minuscule island of Delos? And how did Delos, one of the most important religious centers in Greece, come to be an international trading hub, as well? To answer these questions, this program traces the island's history between the 9th and 1st centuries BC: Delos' renown as the mythological birthplace of Apollo; the subsequent struggles among the Greek city-states to possess Delos; the destruction of Carthage, Corinth, and Beirut, which left Delos the leading commercial center of its time; and Delos' subsequent decline into irrelevancy. Generous footage of ruins and monuments marking each era-and memorializing the many peoples who fought for control of this speck of sand and rock-is included.
