Ancient Civilizations

Show Summary

Ancient Civilizations is a National Geographic documentary/biography series that explores mysteries ranging from the lost Kingdom of the Maya to Noah's Flood. Each of the 12 episodes examines a mysterious civilization or historical event with the goal of understanding how our modern world has been shaped by ancient historical, cultural and political structures. What are the original roots of a civilization? What sustains a civilization, and what causes it to fall? In seeking answers, the camera follows modern-day scientists as they use state-of-the art technology to discover the underlying truth. A specially-designed robot travels inside the Great Pyramid of Egypt to probe previously inaccessible and unexplored shafts, sonar scans scour the ocean floor for clues to Noah's flood, CT scans investigate the secrets behind King Tut's golden mask, and modern genetics trace the origins of the Phoenicians. Architectural wonders and cultural curiosities that have fascinated people for decades are revealed through the lens of modern technology as this documentary series tries to shed light on the origins of mankind.
