Description

From fiery chariots and flying carpets to fire-breathing dragons, Ancient Aliens® Special Edition from H2® examines whether ancient stories about fantastic modes of transportation, along with giant megaliths and advanced devices are examples of alien technology. Ancient texts and myths tell of strange objects flying in the sky, but there is no modern correlation. And megalithic stones believed to have been ancient burial sites, temples, and astronomical observatories are found throughout the world. Yet none can be explained by contemporary or past technology, and the mystery of how the stones were cut and moved to build these formations remains. Could these mysteries provide clues not only to our past but also to our future?

    Alien Transports

    Ancient cultures around the world tell stories of strange objects witnessed flying in the sky. But are these tales fiction, or might people living thousands of years ago actually have seen extraterrestrial crafts descending from the heavens? In the Hebrew Bible's Book of Ezekiel, the prophet describes a fiery chariot containing wheels within wheels, powered by angels. In ancient Ethiopian texts, King Solomon of Israel gave the Queen of Sheba a flying carpet, and traveled on one himself throughout the Middle East. And Chinese mythology explains that the god Huang Di emerged from the belly of a fire-breathing dragon to become China's first emperor. Could these accounts of fiery chariots, flying carpets and fire-breathing dragons really be descriptions of misunderstood technology involving mysterious crafts? Have otherworldly spacecraft been soaring across Earth's skies for thousands of years? What were our ancestors really describing in their ancient stories?

    Mysterious Structures

    All over the world there are megalithic stone structures whose construction baffle stonecutters, scientists and archeologists. Is it possible that ancient humans managed to move and cut these gigantic rocks with the help of alien technology? From the 3,000 megalithic stones in the French village of Carnac to the precision-cut blocks at Puma Punku in Peru to the 12,000 year-old circular structures of Gobekli Tepe, carved multi-ton megaliths are found throughout ancient cultures. Yet the mystery of how the stones were cut and moved to build these formations remains. One possible answer may be found at Coral Castle, Florida, where in the 1930s an anti-gravity device was allegedly used to move 30-ton coral blocks to create the giant sculpted gardens. Massive stone ruins mark what we believe to be ancient burial sites, temples and astronomical observatories--but how these megaliths were built cannot be explained.

    Mysterious Devices

    A 2,000-year-old computer... a power plant inside the Great Pyramid... and a Nazi-era time machine with roots in the ancient history. Throughout the world, there are artifacts and stories that point to advanced technology in the distant past. Could these devices be products of our ancestors' imaginations or might ancient man have had access to extraterrestrial technology? Were ancient Egyptians able to generate electricity, perhaps even illuminating the corridors of the royal tombs with electric light bulbs? Did top-ranking Nazis secretly develop a time-travel machine that was used as an escape vehicle after their defeat in Europe? Could the Ark of the Covenant have been a sonic weapon? Many of the world's most mysterious devices have been here for thousands of years. Could they have been built with the help of extraterrestrial beings?

    Faces of the Gods

    Throughout history, there are stories of strange beings unlike anything known to exist on Earth. Could they be more than just mythology? Could our ancestors' descriptions of heavenly visitors with bird-like wings be evidence of contact with extraterrestrial visitors called angels? Did giants really walk the Earth thousands of years ago? And if so, could they have been from another world? Or perhaps even the result of alien experimentation with our own DNA? Is it possible that elongated skulls found on numerous continents are evidence of humans mimicking the appearance of otherworldly visitors, as Ancient Astronaut theorists suggest? Or could they even be the skulls of extraterrestrials themselves? Could ancient history hold clues to the possibility that we have been visited in the past by extraterrestrials? If so, did they come to shape mankind's past--or its future?
