Explore the mysteries of ancient sculptures made by people who could never have seen their work.
"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.
Etched into the driest desert in the world, the mysterious Nasca lines in Southern Peru are invisible from the ground. Thought to have been made between 200 BC and 600 AD, these huge drawings were not discovered until the 1930s--and only then by commercial airline pilots who happened to over-fly them. Who built them, and why? Josh Bernstein searches for answers, flying micro-lites and powered para-gliders, clambering through thousand-year old irrigation tunnels, and recreating rituals with contemporary Native Americans.
