Did the Maya Empire relocate to America? How did Merriweather Lewis really die? Where did the Ark of the Covenant end up after being smuggled out of Jerusalem? Join Explorers Club Members Justin Fornal & Emiliano Ruprah for a special premiere of their new show UNEXPLAINED AND UNEXPLORED, live at Explorers Club Headquarters on Monday, October 28th at 6:00 pm – before it premieres worldwide in a new eight-episode Science Channel series on Sunday, November 10th at 10 p.m. ET/PT!
Though no single map holds the whole picture of these mysteries, Justin and Emiliano cross-reference the information held within them, spurring the pair to launch new, in-depth investigations. Expert researchers and laser mapping tools help locate the mythical outposts detailed in these maps and unravel the mysteries behind their disappearances.
In the premiere episode, Justin and Emiliano use an unusual map in an attempt to solve the legend of California’s Ghost Ship. In the late 1800s, local newspapers began reporting on a mysterious phenomenon in which dozens of witnesses claimed to catch a glimpse of what appeared to be a massive wooden ship rising from the desert, more than a hundred miles from the nearest body of water. Ever since, legend has it that there may be a 16th century English ship, loaded with gold, silver and jewels.
Among the other mysteries in the premiere season of UNEXPLAINED AND UNEXPLORED that maps are used to try to find out whether the Knights Templar secretly brought their treasure to the New World a century before Columbus’s voyage to America. Also looked at are clues left behind by the Ancient Egyptians that may help lead Justin and Emiliano to the location of the legendary land of Punt, so revered by the pharaohs, it was known as the “Land of the Gods.”
