Lost Treasures of the Copper Scroll

In the depths of an Israeli cave, archaeologists found rolls of dusty manuscripts dating to the 1st century AD, and they are inscribed on a copper scroll! Scholars believe the copper scrolls represent a detailed treasure map--a list of hiding places where the priests of Jerusalem's Second Temple stored their most precious silver and gold artifacts during times of trouble.moreless

      • Josh: This week join me on a treasure hunt through the Holy Land using this copper scroll as our guide. Could this mysterious list of secret caches reveal a horde of silver and gold worth a billion dollars? Is it the treasure of King Solomon, or the lost fortune of an Egyptian Pharaoh? To find out I'll follow the clues in the scroll to an ancient copper mine, explore Dead Sea caves that still might hold untold riches and use ground penetrating radar to look for treasure beneath an ancient fortress. We're digging for the truth and we're going to extremes to do it.
