Charismatic archaeologist Ruth Shady and her team of archaeologists explore the ancient cradle of Andean culture. They discover a peaceful civilisation with an inventive spirit. The now world-famous magnificent Inca buildings in Cuzco and Machu Picchu were based on Caral's architectural knowledge of how to build temples and fortresses earthquake-proof. Unlike many of its successor empires, Caral was successful without practising war and oppression. Women played a significant role in this. After 1000 years of prosperity, the desert metropolis was abandoned for reasons that have remained mysterious until now. Did ancient climate catastrophes seal Caral's downfall?
