Josh scours Central America to reveal the secrets of the world's most prolific pyramid builders.
Indiana Jones, watch out! 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 Egyptians built less than a 100 pyramids; the Maya built thousands. But what was their significance? Determined to solve the meaning of the Mayan pyramids, Josh explores ancient tombs, dives in flooded caverns, and shoots whitewater rapids. Finally, he reaches a secret place in the high jungle of Guatemala where a mountain, a cave, and a river converge. It's here, according to the Maya, that the world was born, and it's this mystical place upon which all Mayan pyramids are modeled.
