ANCIENT DISCOVERIES finds out whether a simple bamboo tube could have been the world's first gun.
Countless modern inventions, such as planes, cars, robots and other machines, may have been conceived thousands of years ago in such far-away lands as ancient Egypt, Greece, Turkey, and the Far East. Go back millennia to see how our ancestors' grandest ideas mirror those of modern society in the series ANCIENT DISCOVERIES.
Experts and archaeological digs continue to reveal new evidence into ancient inventions that were previously believed to have been created only in modern times. Each week, the series unearths new clues that connect the present with the past in more startling ways than we had ever imagined.
