Review: National Geographic: Peru's Mass Grave Mystery


In the cloud forests of Peru are the remains a lost civilization and an ancient legend of mass murder. For hundreds of years, anthropologists have been hunting for who or what killed these people. National Geographic Channel tries to analyze the evidence and test theories to dig up the truth in this documentary.

This is a part of National Geographic Channels "explorer" series, which I am not a big fan of. Actually, I tend to dislike these documentaries. This was one of the better, but also this uses way to much time before it gets to the point; who killed these guys?

Over all, it met the NGC standard for quality, and if you see the first 10 minutes to understand what it is about, and then skip the next 30 minutes, so you just see the last 5 minutes, it's well worth your time. If not, well.. Stay away or at least multi-task. Not recommended, and rated 2 out of 6.

  2. yeah realistically it was probably disease that killed them, the american civilizations tended to have big populations and poor hygiene

  3. Woah. That's intense. There is still a civilization out there that has never had contact with modern technologically adept humans. I LOVE this stuff!

  5. Nat Geo makes some awesome shows, usually very visually appealing. like you said though some of the explorer series are pretty bland though.
