Why and how could ancient people have dragged these railway-car sized of stone, stacked them up together into these giant buildings? ibid. Childress
Huge machines cutting through solid rock. The transportation of multi-ton stone blocks. Modern aircraft carrying millions of people each day around the world. And space shuttles sending humans to the stars. Examples of modern technology, or evidence that these incredible achievements actually existed on Earth thousands of years ago? Did ancient man possess knowledge far beyond that of our own century? And if so, from where did it come? Ancient Aliens s1e1: The Evidence
Ancient Alien theorists believe past civilisations possess these same advanced technologies. They cite a number of cultural myths that describe sky people coming to Earth in fire-breathing dragons or metallic-looking machines as proof of extraterrestrial visitation. ibid.
Ancient alien theorists do not believe extraterrestrials built these ancient monuments but instead provided technological knowledge and/or tools to our ancestors. ibid.
If ancient civilisations did not possess modern mechanical equipment, how did they move and lift mega-ton stones. Were they given an extra helping hand by extraterrestrial visitors? ibid.
Among all the tools discovered by Petrie however one stood out from all the rest. While working inside the Great Pyramid Petrie stumbled across a tubular drill made of granite. ibid.
If the ancient Egyptians didn’t possess diamonds, how were the precision grooves cut on to the granite drill? What had Petrie accidentally discovered? ibid.
Today opinion polls indicate that more than half the people in the world believe that aliens have come here in the past or are coming here now. Ancient Aliens s1e2: The Visitors
Celestial beings coming down to Earth, gods descending from the sky ... Do similar accounts exist in other cultures and other religions across the world? And if so, what is the explanation? ibid.
Why might these images resemble modern astronauts? If they are aliens, is it possible they are similar to humans with similar limitations? And could they have come from a planet something like Earth? ibid.
Some of the most compelling images of the elongated cranium can be traced to ancient Egypt, and the depictions of one of its most controversial pharaohs: could it be that he too was mimicking the appearance of extraterrestrials? Or is there an even more outrageous explanation? Could the pharaoh himself have been an alien? ibid.
Egypt: long before the pharaohs built the pyramids or even before communities settled along the River Nile the legends spoke of an era called Zep Tepi or the beginning of time. According to the myth, Zep Tepi was when sky gods descended from the stars to Earth on flying boats, and then turned mud and water into a prosperous new kingdom. ibid.
Tutankhamun [the son of Akhenaten] was also found with an elongated skull. ibid.
Thirty miles south of Gallup, New Mexico, lies the pueblo of Zuni ... Much of the Zuni people’s history is etched into the rock-faces of the surrounding New Mexican desert ... These legends are rooted in the belief that the tribe’s creators and protectors are super-natural beings who came from the sky ... They appear to depict modern space travellers and their astral vehicles. ibid.
Millions of people around the world believe that in the past we were visited by extraterrestrial beings. But what if it were true? Did ancient aliens really help to shape our history? And if so, why did they come here? And just what was their mission? Ancient Aliens s1e3: The Mission
The Fermi Paradox as it became known was an attempt to explain the lack of evidence of aliens despite the mathematical probability of their existence. ibid.
Also located in Peru are the famous Nazca lines. While the origins of these ancient geoglyphs remain a mystery the area in which the lines are located suggests a major excavation took place there, perhaps hundreds of centuries ago. ibid.
The so-called Band of Holes located in the Pisco Valley is a complete mystery ... The holes are about three feet apart and measure six to seven feet in depth. There are thousands of them. ibid.
Nabta Playa, Egypt: five-hundred miles south of Cairo in Egypt’s Nubian Desert sits one of the oldest astronomical sites ever discovered. In 1974 the archaeologist Fred Wendorf almost passed it by before noticing its small stone artefacts and toppled rocks. ibid.
In 1994 the mystery of Nabta Playa took on an even greater significance when Robert Bauval announced a surprising discovery along Egypt’s Giza Plateau. The Great Pyramid contained four long interior shafts. Bauval determined that they were each precisely aligned with specific stars in the sky. ibid.
In his 13th century historical work entitled Otia Imperialia Gervase of Tilbury wrote about an aerial craft over the city of Bristol which purportedly caught its anchor in the church steeple. Ancient Aliens s1e4: Closer Encounters
According to ancient astronaut theorists the UFO-shaped objects found in medieval paintings aren’t the only evidence of an alien presence during this era. In his book The Gods of Eden the author William Bramley cites private journals and other publications throughout Europe which contain accounts of cigar-shaped flying objects emitting noxious mists. ibid.
Germany 14th April 1561: at dawn the citizens of Nuremberg awoke to what was described in a local news-sheet as ‘a very frightful spectacle’ – various strange objects were spotted in the sky engaged in what appeared to be an aerial battle. ibid.
In 1896 there were widespread reports of strange airships hovering over various locations in the American south-west. ibid.

Certain places around the world have baffled scientists and scholars for decades. Places with names like the Zone of Silence, the Gate of the Gods, and the Bermuda Triangle. Visitors to these mysterious sites report a series of strange energies, unexplained disappearance and supernatural phenomena. Ancient Aliens s2e1: Mysterious Places
Perhaps the most infamous of the world’s mysterious places is the Bermuda Triangle. ibid.
What causes ships and planes to disappear without trace? Why has nautical and navigational equipment stopped working, or changed course by itself? Historical shipping records show that the mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle are much older than many people think. Ever since the earliest days of oceanic exploration sailors have witnessed strange sights. ibid.
And if there really is a portal in the open waters of the Bermuda Triangle, might there by others on land? ibid.
Mexico: the area near the town of Ceballos is called by the local Zona Del Silencio. It’s an epicentre for some of the strangest phenomena ever experienced on Earth. ibid.
The Zone of Silence was first identified in the 1930s ... Some claim this missile is not the only thing that’s been mysteriously pulled into the Zone of Silence. ibid.
According to legend, these so-called visitors from the sky made themselves known to an ancient people. Could they still be making themselves known to us today? ibid.
Are the magnetic levels, the sky-god legends, and recent sightings of UFOs proof that a portal exists here? And are there other places on Earth that offer more physical evidence? ibid.
800 miles south-east of Peru’s capital Lima near the shores of Lake Titicaca is a site that has mystified visitors from around the world ... the Gate of the Gods. ibid.
