Synopsis

Ancient Mysteries: Blood and Treasure in Peru
Discover the secret history of treasures dating back to the Moche, a pre-Columbian civilization from Peru, in this installment of A&E's Ancient Mysteries. In 1987, spectacular ancient artifacts of solid gold and silver began flowing the art market. Trouble was, no one could quite figure out where these exquisite treasures came from. The answer, as it turns out, would be rather surprising. According to looters, the items were taken during a grave robbery near the remote village of Sipán, Peru. Upon investigating, archeologists discovered the richest burial site in the Western Hemisphere - the Royal Tombs of Sipán. Thanks to the eroded pyramids just outside of Sipán, the site had remained hidden for centuries. Now, for the first time ever, viewers get to descend down into the stunning tombs and follow the remarkable trail of clues that led to one of the most astonishing discoveries on modern archeology. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
