Program Description


Ancient civilizations and cultures produced some seemingly impossible creations, such as the Egyptian pyramids and Nasca lines, but there is a fringe group of individuals who believe that extraterrestrials must have been involved in some way. They also believe they have evidence to support these notions.  Archaeologist Dr. Christine Boston will explore alien hypotheses about ancient mummies and head binding practices, bringing together the human elements of the ancient Egyptian pyramids, NASCA lines, cranial modification, and Ata, the "alien" mummy.
