The Series

UNEARTHED returns for a fourth season of active investigation, ground-breaking discovery and incredible CGI, revealing new evidence and fresh insight into civilizations – ancient and modern - and their iconic megastructures.

The mammoth 22-episode series explores the globe from Egypt and Sudan to Peru and the American Wild West, via Rome, Greece and the ruins of Babylon.

We span the ages too with investigations ranging from the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World right up to the modern day and its wonders.

What are the secrets of Egypt’s first pyramid? How tall was the Lighthouse of Alexandria and where was it built? What explains the fate of the lost Roman cities of Baiae and Herculaneum? What are the Nazca Lines and how are they made? And did the legendary Tower of Babel ever exist? This series explores these – and many other - ancient mysteries.

The series follows archaeologists revealing artifacts lost for centuries and engineers using groundbreaking technology to delve inside ancient wonders.

Why does the Leaning Tower of Pisa lean? How was Rome’s Great Wall built?

Spectacular CGI animation pulls the monuments apart to expose the secrets of their creation.  

UNEARTHED explores new territory too, investigating the mysteries of modern-day icons. We deconstruct New York’s Empire State Building, San Francisco’s forbidding prison island, Alcatraz, the monumental carvings of Mount Rushmore and Hitler’s maze of secret subterranean bunkers.

For the first time, the series goes beyond the investigation of iconic monuments and superstructures, to explore some of history’s greatest mysteries. What killed Otzi the Iceman? Was there a Trojan War? What’s the truth of the legendary Battle of the 300 Spartans? Who wrote the Dead Sea Scrolls? We ask: Did Nero start the Great Fire of Rome? Did the Gunfight of the OK Corral really happen? What caused the crash of the Hindenburg?  And can we solve the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle?
