Secrets of Lost Empires 
Travel to five archaeological sites with NOVA and their teams of experts. The ancients left us many puzzles, not the least of which is how they managed such huge construction projects as Stonehenge and the Great Pyramid using their primitive technology. Some find it most plausible that they had help from benevolent aliens, but Nova sent teams of clever engineers and archaeologists to Egypt, Britain, Rome, and Peru to explore the possibility that ingenuity and muscle power were all it took to build these eternal monuments.

Fall of the Aztec and Maya Empires (1999) 
When Europe was in the Dark Ages, great cities were flourishing in Central America. This video
explores how the Aztec and Mayan empires rose to startling heights and then mysteriously
collapsed. When the Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés landed in 1519 in what is today Mexico,
he and his soldiers were dumbfounded by the large cities they encountered. Using innovative
computer graphics, this video shows what the great Aztec urban centers might have looked like
when Cortés and his men first saw them.
