Lost Worlds is a documentary television series that explores a variety of “lost” locations from ancient to modern times. These locations are revealed through the use of archaeological evidence, interviews with relevant experts, and CGI reproductions. These visual re-creations take the form of rendered 3D environments and photo manipulated overlays, allowing the “lost world” to be seen over its present-day state.
Located on a rocky plateau overlooking the Dead Sea, the now-ruined fortress of Masada once had walls 1400m long and 4m thick, storehouses, barracks, an armory, a palace and massive cisterns filled with rainwater. Designed to withstand any invader, it became the scene of one of history’s most bloody sieges… a siege that ended in mass suicide.
