  2. 6. Easter Island - Where Giants Walked

    On one of the world’s most isolated islands, hundreds of vast stone statues lie mouldering in the grass.

    In this episode, we take a look at one of archaeology’s most enduring puzzles: the mystery of Easter Island. Find out how this unique community grew up in complete isolation, severed from the rest of the world by a vast expanse of ocean. Discover the incredible story of how it survived for so many centuries, and examine the evidence about what happened to finally bring this society, and its statues, crashing down.

  3. 5. The Khmer Empire - Fall of the God Kings

    Deep in the Cambodian Jungle, a ruined city crumbles among the roots of banyan trees.

    In this episode, we look at the history of the Khmer Empire of medieval Cambodia, and the ancient mega-city of Angkor. I want to explore how this great civilization rose to a size and wealth virtually unprecedented in the world, how it overcame the challenges of its climate and landscape, and all the factors that led to its final, dramatic collapse.

  7. 2. The Bronze Age Collapse - Mediterranean Apocalypse

    Around the year 1100 BC, a wave of destruction washed over the Eastern Mediterranean. It wiped whole civilizations off the map, and left only ash and ruin in its wake.

    This catastrophe, known as “the Late Bronze Age Collapse”, has become one of the enduring puzzles of history. I want to explore how so many societies could collapse all at once, and seemingly without warning, as well as examine the lessons it might teach us in our increasingly globalised and interconnected world.

    In the tropical forests of Central America, vast stone pyramids slowly crumble beneath the trees.

    In this episode, we look at one of history’s great romantic mysteries: the fall of the Classic Maya Civilization. Find out how this great civilization grew up among environmental conditions that no other civilization has ever contended with, learn about the fatal flaws that lay beneath its surface, and what happened after its final, cataclysmic collapse.

  9. 4. The Greenland Vikings - Land of the Midnight Sun

    One of the most unlikely tales of a society’s fall in is the incredible saga of the Vikings of Greenland.

    Find out the history of how these European settlers built a society on the farthest edge of their world, and survived for centuries among some of the harshest conditions ever faced by man. Discover how this civilization was able to overcome the odds for so long, and examine the evidence about what happened to cause its final and mysterious collapse. Including Viking poetry, Inuit folktales and thousands upon thousands of walrus.

  10. 1C-Knights of the Round Table: The Lion Knight Rises

    In this episode, you’ll see that you should definitely interfere if you see two apex predators fighting to the death in the wilderness. We’ll finish the story of Yvain, a knight of King Arthur’s court, as he (mostly) sees the error in his ways and (mostly) seeks atonement for his extreme selfishness.

    After you hear the creature of the week, you won’t want to get up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night for fear of running into this greasy little red guy from Japanese mythology.
