LOST WORLDS journeys through time to relive some of the most crucial events in world history within the walls where they occurred. In each revealing episode, discover secrets of the past with a team of historical detectives using evidence from recent excavations, state-of-the-art scientific studies, and historical documents. History comes alive before your eyes.
Located on a rocky plateau overlooking the Dead Sea, the now-ruined fortress of Masada once had walls 1400m long and 4m thick, storehouses, barracks, an armory, a palace and massive cisterns filled with rainwater. Designed to withstand any invader, it became the scene of one of history's bloodiest sieges... a siege that ended in mass suicide.
LOST WORLDS transports you to the famed fortress to walk its streets, to look out over the assembled enemy, and to suffer with its citizens. Recent findings have made it easier to understand the downfall of the unconquerable stronghold, and brilliant animations bring Masada to life at the height of its glory and depths of its downfall.
