Like @jacklyons I have been reading Graham Hancock's book America Before. I am now officially caught up into the mysteries of ancient civilizations. For all the advancement in knowledge and technology by modern humans, it is surprising how little we know about our own past.
I found the series Ancient Aliens on Amazon Prime. I had heard about the show but never watched it. I watched the first episode and now I'm hooked.
The basic premise of the show seems to be to explore the various ancient structures and archeological findings and speculate wildly about the origins. It seems that the precision that was used in the architecture seems to outmatch what we can do today. It is certainly beyond what is commonly thought of as the level of sophistication of such ancient cultures. Ancient aliens seems to suggest that extra terrestrials have visited earth and either constructed these grand creations or helped humans construct them using advanced technology.
I don't know what to make of it other than to be fascinated by the archeological findings and how mysterious they are. I don't remember history being this cool when I was learning it in school. This is a great diversion from the usual content and one I'm excited to explore further.

    @brandonwilson oh awesome! I'm a big fan of Ancient Aliens too! Love the series, and also recently discovered Bob Lazar and Graham Hancock via Joe Rogan. I find Graham Hancock a lot more convincing than the Ancient Aliens series tbh...the leaps of logic in the series are quite huge, but the questions raised by Hancock are tighter and sounds more evidence-based. But I love the sense of wonder that both provide! Just asking those "What if....?" questions challenging some very deeply entrenched beliefs of our human origin and history is so mind-expanding...

      @jasonleow You are right the series can be a little out there at times. I do like the emphasis on evidence. We should go where the evidence takes us rather than rely on dogma or long-held beliefs.

    @brandonwilson Sounds like a series I could enjoy. Sadly, only available through the paid History Prime Channel here in Austria.
