Bone Detectives

Discovery Channel – Mondays from 7 April, 7.30pm

An adventurous archaeologist journeys to the farthest reaches of the earth on a quest driven by the belief that the secrets of the past are yet to be revealed. Carefully preserved mummies and entombed skeletons are a link to ancient civilizations. Each episode presents a mystery to unravel, a life to understand, a world to explore and a death to reveal. However, these long-hidden remains do not yield their secrets easily. Ancient tombs are protected by lush vegetation, inhospitable terrain, ever-changing weather, dangerous wildlife and man-made obstacles. The pursuit of mummies and the answers to the mysteries they raise, will take our adventurer to some of the most spectacular and remote places on our planet.
