      • Narrator: Aphrodisias, a remote city on the borders of the Roman Empire. Once famed for its breathtaking beauty and lifelike statues, today it's almost forgotten and yet it's incredible state of preservation rivals Pompeii. It was the most sacred shrine of Aphrodite, Goddess of Love, and pilgrims traveled hundreds of miles to come here. Among them was Julius Caesar, seeking the blessings of the goddess and he bid to become master of Rome. The city was caught up in the civil wars that convulsed Rome in the 1st century B.C. its ultimate savior was a freed slave, whose extraordinary vision shaped the city we see today. Now our investigators will use the latest archaeological research to recreate the city's most magnificent buildings. Its temples, its public monuments, its places of entertainment and the lost tomb of its founding father. We will bring to life a Roman city as was at its height, from the divine architecture of its most sacred shrines to the bloody spectacles enacted to satisfy its people, this is the lost world of Aphrodisias.
