History is filled with fascinating and impressive archeological monuments that are often difficult to find. Science Channel takes us into three in its November specials.

One thing we don’t want to see happen is history to just disappear. There’s so much that we can learn from, even when it comes to history of centuries past. It’s time to gather the whole family around for three compelling and intriguing specials coming to Science Channel.

These specials are sure to be the ultimate dinner conversation starters. They give us a look at some of the most incredible archeological mysteries.

Wondered about the collapse of the Mayan civilization? Ever tried to figure out if the Trojan horse was really a thing? Science Channel takes us into the biggest archeological monuments, bringing the stories to life with a mixture of storytelling, 3D animation, and the latest scientific technology.

Science Channel specials covering archeological monuments

Lost Tombs of the Maya

The first of the specials airs on Sunday, Nov. 7 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. A team goes into why the Maya abandoned their cities in the 9th century, looking for clues with the latest technology. Was there a climate disaster, or was it the human race destroying it all?

One of the fascinating monuments is the tomb of Copan’s 15th king. Will it have the answers hidden inside? Scientists will also look into the unique burial practices and what could have been a group sacrifice as an offering to the gods.

Lost Cities of the Trojans

You know about Troy and the fall of it. Even without the Brad Pitt movie, you’ll have heard all about the Trojan Horse. It’s one of the biggest stories from the past, but was it a myth or did it happen? That’s something scientists look into on Lost City of the Trojans on Sunday, Nov. 14 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Investigators start in Turkey, looking at the city that some believe was Troy. Then the scientists will head to Amsterdam, giving archeologists a chance to reexamine the work of the earlier explorers. After that, it’s a trip to Greece to the remains of a wealthy town that has links to the story. Will the teams figure out the truth behind the story? This is sure to be something for the whole family, and you’ll probably want to watch the movie Troy afterward.

Caesar’s Doomsday War

Finally, it’s all about one of the most influential and infamous figures from history, Julius Caesar. Caesar’s reign is full of stories, but there is also a lot of mystery behind it. It’s time to uncover the truth.

This special takes us into the war and gives us a deeper understanding of the Gaul people. It’s time to trace their origins and follow the events that gave them Rome’s terrifying reputation. Where did their wealth come from? What was behind the lost cities of the Gauls? 3D animation is used to chart key moments in Caesar’s conquest and explore the cities once more.

The special airs on Sunday, Nov. 21 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Science Channel.
