The Ancient Aliens series investigates everything from how our ancestors were able to achieve extraordinarily advanced feats of engineering, to why there are so many written descriptions of "flying machines" and visitors from "above" who possessed extraordinary powers. Whether examining cave drawings and sculptures of spaceships and astronaut suits or the architectural marvels of Stonehenge, Easter Island, and Egypt, Ancient Aliens uncovers evidence that suggests our ancestors may have received help from a more advanced celestial species. The series includes interviews with expert archeologists, physicists, authors, religious scholars, and engineers.
