      • Don Wildman: In the middle of modern day Turkey lies a region that was under siege for centuries, this lunar landscape is called Cappadocia. And beneath its quaint villages, roads and farmlands is one of the largest subterranean battlefields in the world. First carved out by the pagan Hittites over 3,000 years ago, hundreds of underground cities span for miles and have endured the bloody wars, religious battles and constant conflict that have always threatened to destroy them. From tunnels rigged with booby traps, to the clandestine roots of Christianity, and the remains of an advanced, pagan civilization that mysteriously disappears, Cappadocia has secrets inside every cave. And around every corner signs of the evolution of ancient warfare have been buried for more than 3,000 years. We're peeling back the layers of time on Cities of the Underworld: Secret Pagan Underground.
