Episode 4: Malta

Filmed on location in: Malta, Morocco, USA & Ireland

In between the years 3600 and 2300 BC, an extraordinary civilization developed on the small Mediterranean island of Malta. For almost 1,500 years, the sacred sites built by the temple people of ancient Malta were the pinnacle of Western Civilization. Around 2300 BC, their civilization collapsed, and the islands were abandoned – for no apparent reason. New archeological investigations may explain the shocking causes of this ancient apocalypse. Astonishingly, it may have originated not on earth, but in space.
