      • Narrator: In June 1509, Henry the VIII was crowned King of England. His rule would be decadent and brutal and would alter the course of history. When Henry tore the Catholic Church apart seizing its power and money for himself his people would pay a great price. Bloody foreign wars and at home the death for anyone who stood in his way. This was a reign of terror, and still it saw a modernization program more ambitious than anything that had gone before. The King invested the equivalent of billions constructing castles, palatial homes and a new Royal Navy. In the 500 years since his death, the world Henry created has all but disappeared but now our investigators intend to piece it back together again. They will rediscover what he left behind in wood, bricks and mortar. They will recreate the splendor and majesty of the lost world of Henry VIII.
