    Synopsis


    National Geographic: Lost Kingdoms of the Maya
    Over a thousand years ago, one earth's most advanced societies vanished, leaving behind temples, the ruins of cities, and works of art in the now-overgrown jungles of present-day Mexico and Central America. We call them the Maya, and the abrupt end of their civilization is still a mystery, although the people live on, still carrying forward some of the ancient traditions. There are many theories and many tantalizing clues left behind in their hieroglyphics, only recently interpreted, but archeologists still don't know for certain what happened. This special includes reenactments of ancient Mayan rituals along with scenes of the ruins. ~ Leslie Birdwell, Rovi

    National Geographic: Nefertiti and the Lost Dynasty
    For millennia, the strange and inexplicable disappearance of Nefertiti, Queen of Egypt, reigned as one of history's most formidable unsolved mysteries. Despite the royal's reputation as one of the most uncompromising and widely-loathed rulers in Egyptian history, questions abounded as to her final whereabouts. Now, with the special Nefertiti and the Lost Dynasty, National Geographic - which gained exclusive access to unidentified tombs prior to this release - sends an archaeological crew to the site of those burials and undertakes a series of on-camera tests to unearth and identify a series of remains, with the hope of locating Nefertiti's mummy and answering longstanding questions that may shed some light on why and how she vanished. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
