Shownotes

In Digging up Ancient Aliens, our host Fredrik uses his background in archaeology to discover what is genuine, fake, and somewhere in between on the TV show Ancient Aliens. 

This time we’re going to find what once was lost. We’re looking into what Ancient Aliens believe to be lost worlds and trying to find out if that’s the case or if there could be another explanation. This time we will visit the city of Copán located in Honduras, according to some theories, there’s evidence in some statutes of alien visitation. We continue to Nemrud Dagi, where we look into astronomy and explain the origin of the three wise men of the New Testament. We continue to Rappa Nui where we look into the creation and movement of the Moai statues and a strange cult dedicated to the manutara. Lastly, we will see if the origin of humans might have been in the Persian Gulf. 

With the latest research, skepticism, and critical thinking, we will find the true origin of our past. This episode is based on the claims in Ancient Aliens episode four of season three called "Aliens and Lost Worlds" (S03E08).
