Some of the greatest wonders of the ancient world still lie buried – unseen and unexplored – beneath our feet. Lost Cities of the Ancients follows a documentary detective trail of meticulous archaeological and historical clues to unearth some of the greatest lost cities of the ancient World.

 

Through drama and CGI these lost wonders are recreated and restored to their original splendour.

 

So vast are some mysterious ruined sites, the notion that they could one day disappear must have been inconceivable for those living there. Imagine modern day Manhattan sinking under the waves, or Paris being covered over with earth. As this series shows, every civilization, however magnificent, must eventually die and become a lost world.

 

 

Episode 1 - The Vanished Capital of the Pharaoh

New series exploring the world's greatest lost civilisations and cities, beginning with the disappearing ancient Egyptian capital Piramese. The city sparked confusion when it was found in a location where it could not possibly have been built. Archaeologists Manfred Bietak and Edgar Pusch attempt to solve the baffling mystery.

 

Episode 2: The Cursed Valley of the Pyramids

Looking back at the Lambayeque civilisation, who based their culture around a strong belief that building pyramids was essential to their survival - as was human sacrifice. Archaeologists in northern Peru found mass graves near the lost city of Tucume, revealing a bloody secret.

 

Episode 3: The Dark Lords of Hattusha

Profile of the ancient Hittite civilization, looking at what archaeologists found when they uncovered the lost capital of Hattusha, including temples, palaces and a pyramid-like structure facing Egypt. The historians also discovered a library, charting the rise and fall of the empire, which vanished 3,000 years ago. Last in series.
