    On April 29, 2008, The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones Volume Three – The Years of Change was released on DVD, following the earlier release of Volume One – The Early Years, and Volume Two – The War Years. Altogether this series contains 22 feature-length chapters and a bunch of extras including interviews, interactive games and timelines, and 94 historical documentaries which focus on particular historical figures or events. This collection is really entertaining and educational, and would make for a pretty sweet history class!
