‘Ancient Apocalypse’ Will Make You Question Everything You Thought You Knew About History

But is it accurate or is the show ‘dangerous history’?

Are any history fans out there? Overwhelmingly, people will probably say no. People usually hate history because they hate their own history. Or some think history is just a subject in school and once you pass it, you’re done. It all comes down to how it is presented, this writer believes.

But the older we get, the more we reflect on life and look back on history, our own or in general. A new Netflix series called Ancient History explores ancient civilizations and all kinds of pieces of history, making viewers question whether they really know history at all.

This series is headed by journalist Graham Hancock who is diving into history as we know it. Hancock looks into history through archeology to gather a better understanding of what humans built, thought, and was trying to accomplish in early periods of history. Hancock makes viewers rethink everything about history by presenting new evidence and new perspectives on how we see and understand history.

Hancock wants you to think like this:

What if everything we know about prehistory is wrong? Journalist Graham Hancock visits archaeological sites around the world investigating if a civilization far more advanced than we ever believed possible existed thousands of years ago.

Hancock talks about how there are civilizations that we have forgotten about entirely. Without Hancock looking into this, these civilizations would still be lost. And the deeper he digs, the more he will discover. Like most series, this was met with mixed reviews.

Some people liked it, some didn’t. History is a subject that people love or hate. It is hard to accept when you’re told something different than what you have known for your whole life. Scientific expert opinion diverges from Hancock’s greatly, with some archaeologists branding him a “dangerous conspiracy theorist” with the ability to do real damage given him newfound fame and platform as a result fo the Netflix show. We’ll let you be the judge of which side of the fence you sit on after watching the show.

If you need a break from your family this week and want something interesting to watch, give Ancient Apocalypse a try. If that’s not really your thing, here is a list of other new series.
