Genre)  history

Format) 1×50’

Synopsis) Unearthing the “other” road of ancient civilization.

Before the Silk Road, there existed another road, one that carried iron across the continent. Starting from West Asia, newly discovered archaeological remains in the prairies and mountains throughout Eurasia are shedding light on ancient civilizations hitherto shrouded in mystery. With special access to excavation sites and featuring exquisite artifacts that denote highly sophisticated societies, the program offers glimpses of how iron changed world history. Not only as an awesome weapon in war, the precious metal and its smelting technology created peace and commerce, while revolutionizing mobility on horseback and farming production.
