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.
Josh leaps into the most thrilling real-life treasure hunt in modern archaeology as he travels to the caves of Qumran in Israel, where a copper scroll from the 1st century AD was discovered. Many believe this ancient artifact, a cultural treasure in itself, contains a list of hiding places where priests of Jerusalem's Second Temple stored their most precious silver and gold during times of trouble.
On site in the rugged landscape where the ancient events occurred, Josh tries his hand at reproducing the antique scroll, then sets out to make his own great discovery hundreds of yards underground. Using both ground-penetrating radar and rappelling gear, Josh takes us into the depths to discover the Holy Land's secrets.
