With breathtaking CGI, beautiful landscape footage and some of the world’s most important astronomical artifacts, Ancient Skies looks at the cosmos through the eyes of our ancestors, charting our changing views of the cosmos throughout history. It's a journey through past visions of the heavens from all over the world, from the dawn of civilization to the recent past.
From hunter-gatherers to Edwin Hubble, Ancient Skies follows the myriad of ways that we have observed and chronicled the movements of the heavens. And, with a cast of expert historians and astronomers, it also uncovers the science behind the phenomena that our ancestors sought to explain through mythology.
