Plot Synopsis

SECRETS OF THE LOST is a one-hour docuseries that follows archaeologists, as they explore magnificent mysteries found around the globe and use clues to piece together the site's history and inner workings of each location. In the first two episodes, archaeologists uncover what was involved in constructing one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World: the Great Pyramid of Giza. An incredible new discovery, the oldest Egyptian text ever found, details the work of a man, Merer, who was tasked with helping ferry thousands of tons of stone to the construction site of the Great Pyramid. This remarkable document from a 4,500- year-old piece of papyrus, is finally helping unlock the deepest secrets of this super-sized monument. Now, experts use clues from Merer's text -- as well as pieces of wood from a giant ship that belonged to the pharaoh Khufu -- to reveal how workers like Merer harnessed the flood waters of the Nile to fill an incredible network of man-made canals that brought their boats close to the pyramid's construction site. These new discoveries and experiments are unlocking more than just how the Egyptians built the Great Pyramid; they are exposing the truth about how the pyramid project helped to build Egypt itself, transforming the nation and its people forever. In subsequent episodes, SECRETS OF THE LOST explores Pompeii, Stonehenge, and more.
