Ancient Discoveries

Thursdays at 8pm ET/PT beginning September 3

Cranes, helicopters, trains, cars and machines are all perceived as testaments to our modern intelligence and ingenuity. But new findings suggest otherwise. Perhaps all these inventions, and many more, were conceived thousands of years ago in places like ancient Egypt, Greece, and the Far East. Ancient Discoveries goes back in time to see how our ancestors’ grandest ideas mirror those of modern society.
