Documentary examining the possible whereabouts of the ancient Christian relic, reputed to be the cup that Jesus drank from at the Last Supper and that received His blood at the Crucifixion. In 2014, historian Margarita Torres discovered two Arabic parchments recording the journey of Christ's cup from Jerusalem to Spain in 1055. One parchment states that the cup arrived in Spain with a piece missing. The onyx cup in Leon's San Isidora basilica matches this description. In Leon, Torres finds further evidence that this may be the Holy Grail in a medieval painting of the Supper.
To the ancients, the heavens were filled with awe and wonder. Looking out into space inspired fear, superstitions and the building of massive monuments like Stonehenge. Now, we examine the greatest mysteries of the past to see if they can finally be solved by modern science.
Documentary examining recent discoveries made in the famous burial chamber and following scientists as they forensically analyse the hidden, blocked doorways identified in the tomb, which archaeologists now believe may also be the resting place of Queen Nefertiti.
Efforts to find the location of Pi-Ramesse, an eight square-mile settlement built by the 19th Dynasty of Egypt Pharaoh Ramesses II in the northernmost region of Egypt. Its location and the reasons it disappeared have long been a mystery, and an apparent `find' in the 1940s turned out to be bogus. As this documentary reveals, a team of archaeologists and experts have now uncovered new evidence that pinpoints exactly where the city once stood, revealed its vast size and pieced together the extraordinary story of why it disappeared.
