This is where we put the music that we feel is suitable for historical documentaries and films from any period before the 1920's. Be it the early 20th century America or even older going back to ancient times to explore Egyptian pyramids or South American Mayan culture, I guess you could say that this music would be suitable for use on the History Channel. You'll find a lot of classical music here, as well as folk / ambient and other music genres.
