Planet Knowledge

Ancient X Files II – Dawn of Man

Trek to a remote corner of eastern Turkey, where archaeologists have uncovered what is thought to be the oldest man-made structure on the planet: Gobekli Tepe. Built more than 12,000 years ago, the structure predates any known civilisation with the architectural or engineering know-how. Could Gobekli Tepe be evidence of a lost civilization and the world’s first religion? Then, head to Ireland where almost perfectly preserved prehistoric bodies have been unearthed from the peat bogs for centuries. Mutilated and decapitated, the bog bodies have been thought to be victims of Iron Age justice who were executed for their crimes. One archaeologist believes the bodies could actually be ancient kings ritually sacrificed to satisfy the hunger of the gods
