The hunt for ancient treasure has gripped the minds of adventurers for millennia.
Using the latest scientific research, exclusive interviews, exotic location footage, lavish historical re-enactments, state-of-the-art computer graphics and old-fashioned detective work, this three-part series tells the stories of historic treasures lost, found and lost again. It tells of mystery and intrigue. It re-examines the process of treasure hunting in light of today's values. Are the treasure hunters saviors of lost cultures, or robbers of graves? And who really owns the remains of extinct cultures ... the land where they were discovered, or the people who worked to find them?
