Episode 3 - Teotihuacan: Curse of the Blood Pyramids
Archaeologists are unearthing dark secrets beneath Mexico’s most mysterious ancient site. Until recently, historians knew almost nothing about the long lost culture that built the giant pyramids of Teotihuacan. Digging deeper than ever into these colossal 2,000-year-old structures, scientists are now uncovering evidence of brutal human sacrifice. Many of the victims appear to have decapitated, others buried alive. Secret tunnels stretch deep below the pyramids filled with treasures and painted with the glimmer of gold. Who were the people that built Teotihuacan, what was the source of their wealth and why was this city so suddenly abandoned 1400 years ago?
