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. In this episode, we will set out deep into the jungles of South America, searching for two famous cities made of gold. Eldorado and Paititi, could these legendary places be evidence of alien visitation? Join in as we see what the latest research has uncovered.
We'll also look into modern attempts to turn ordinary metals into precious metals. New technologies have unlocked what some call "the philosopher's stone." But could this technology have existed in the past?
This episode is based on the claims in Ancient Aliens episode four of season three called "Aliens and Temples of Gold" (S03E04). You will find the full transcript of the episode, a complete reference list, and much more on the episode webpage.
