“Ancient Aliens” season 6, episode 15: “Treasures of the Gods” airs tonight on the History Channel.
On this week’s episode, sealed vaults possessing a strange and deadly curse; mysterious relics believed to be under otherworldly protection; and riches so priceless, it has cost men their lives. On every continent there are stories of incredible treasures that have been lost for centuries. Is it possible that the world’s greatest ancient relics are hidden on purpose–and protected by an extraterrestrial source?
“Ancient Aliens” is based on the 1968 bestseller “Chariots of the Gods” by Erich von Daniken, a book based on the theory of “ancient aliens” that rocked people’s beliefs in mankind’s progress. Ancient cave drawings of strange creatures, remains of landing strips in Peru, and Indian texts that describe the “flying machines of the gods” were just a few of the odd archaeological artefacts cited by von Daniken as proof that ancient astronauts were well known to our ancestors.
Produced with the exclusive cooperation of von Daniken himself, “Ancient Aliens” launches all-new expeditions to seek out and evaluate this evidence, with a concentration on the latest discoveries of the last 30 years, including unusual DNA findings on man’s evolution and newly decoded artifacts from Egypt to Syria to South America. It is a balanced investigation into a theory some believe cannot be true, but many agree cannot be ignored.
“Ancient Aliens” season 6, episode 15: “Treasures of the Gods” airs Feb 14, at 10 pm EST on the History Channel.
