Adventure has a new name! Host, explorer and survival expert Josh Bernstein takes a fresh look at the world's greatest ancient mysteries and puts adventure back into history as he travels to some of the most intriguing, remote and physically challenging locations in the world. With a fresh and engaging approach to archaeology, Josh goes to extremes and takes us along for the ride.
The largest single cut stone on Earth weighs an unbelievable 200 tons! It is just one of the splendors of Tiwanaku.
Like the phenomenal achievements of Easter Island and Stonehenge, the methods and motivations behind the massive constructions at Tiwanaku have long mystified scholars. Begun over a thousand years ago, abandoned long before Europeans arrived, the impressive structures above Lake Titicaca remain today in silent, awesome tribute to the commitment and ingenuity of their creators.
What motivated them to create this citadel? What meaning can be gleaned from the intricate organization of the Tiwanaku site? When was the city abandoned? And most compelling of all, how and why did the ancient builders transport unimaginably heavy stones 40 kilometers to this particular spot?
As ever, Josh is just the man to get to the bottom of these mysteries! And "get to the bottom" he does, diving into the depths of Titicaca to discover remnants of an ancient civilization. Taking to the skies, he also gets a bird's-eye perspective on the majestic ancient city. And, of course, no expedition would be complete without Josh getting his hands dirty: this time he harvests and transports the very stone used in Tiwanaku.
Enjoy this fascinating exploration of the STONHENGE OF THE AMERICAS.
