Starting on February 22 and running Mondays at 21h20 on the History Channel HISTORY® (DStv 186) is Ancient Discoveries.

In the ancient texts of Homer and on the walls of Egyptian tombs lie tantalising clues that are causing historians to re-think just how sophisticated centuries old societies were. Drawings show that the Egyptians may have unlocked the secret to flight with primitive helicopter designs, and that the Chinese had a “wind car”’ in the 6th century AD that could transport them over land at up to 30 miles per hour.

Ancient Discoveries unearths new clues that connect the present with the past in more startling ways than ever imagined.
