The people who became known as the Anasazi began to farm the Four Corners Region as early as 1 A.D. For most of their history, they lived in small, scattered villages on the mesas and in the valleys. But in the middle of the 13th century, something happened. They began to cluster together and built high walls around their homes, or lived precariously on the cliff-sides. Then, a few decades later, they abandoned these homes, leaving behind most of their possessions, as if they intended to return. Instead, they disappeared from history. What happened? Did drought drive them away? Invading tribes? There is compelling evidence that the Anasazi might have had to turn to warfare and even cannibalism. Piecing together the story from both archaeologists and Native Americans, Josh Bernstein finally ends up, in his search for the truth, in the mysterious ruins of the Anasazi's greatest cultural center, Chaco Canyon, which for unknown reasons was abandoned around 1150 A.D

Giants of Easter Island( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ever since Easter Island was discovered by Europeans, this tiny speck of land in the middle of the Pacific Ocean has baffled scientists. It's only eleven miles long by seven miles wide, and it's the most remote inhabited place on the planet. How did the ancients who peopled this place even find it? Carbon dating tells us that Polynesians settled this tiny paradise in the fifth century A. D. By the 14th century, their numbers had grown to almost twenty thousand -- but then something went wrong. When Dutch voyagers found the island in 1722, the population was decimated and the island deforested and almost desertified. Josh learns how the prehistoric Polynesians navigated and colonized the Pacific and how the giant, haunting stone heads of Easter Island may have contributed to their downfall. He learns that the statues all came from a single quarry, the islanders using Stone Age methods to create nearly a thousand of them before, for tragic reasons, they simply stopped, leaving many scattered and unfinished. Around the sixteenth century, many islanders began living underground in lava tube caves. How does this change relate to the ecological degradation and the abandonment of the statues? Josh discovers that place-names indicate the fall of the society into warfare and cannibalism, and that the bizarre Cult of the Birdman, based on worship of the sooty tern, arose to bring an end to the chaos

"Josh leaps into the most thrilling real-life treasure hunt in modern archaeology as he travels to the caves of Qumran in Israel, where a copper scroll from the 1st century AD was discovered. Many believe this ancient artifact, a cultural treasure in itself, contains a list of hiding places where priests of Jerusalem's Second Temple stored their most precious silver and gold during times of trouble. On site in the rugged landscape where the ancient events occurred, Josh tries his hand at reproducing the antique scroll, then sets out to make his own great discovery hundreds of yards underground. Using both ground-penetrating radar and rappelling gear, Josh takes us into the depths to discover the Holy Land's secrets."--A & E web site

"In the American Southwest, there is no more puzzling mystery than the magnificent stone cliff dwellings of Mesa Verde. Why did the Anasazi Indians suddenly move their villages to these perilous cliffs in the 13th century? Was it drought? Invading tribes? Or an insidious "cancer" from within that may have caused them to turn to fierce warfare and even cannibalism? In search of answers, our host, the intrepid explorer and survival expert Josh Bernstein, travels from Mesa Verde, Colorado to remote canyons in Utah where the Anasazi took refuge. Piecing together the story from both archaeologists and Native Americans, he finally ends up, in his search for the truth, in the eerie and desolate ruins of the Anasazi's greatest cultural center--Chaco Canyon"--A & E website
Digging for the truth the Da Vinci code : bloodlines( Visual )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Josh Bernstein searches for solid evidence behind the controversial theory laid out in Dan Brown's book The Da Vinci code. Brown's theory claims that Jesus married Mary Magdalene and that she conceived a child. It also suggests that the bloodline continues unbroken to this day. Josh shows what's true and what's clearly make-believe. From musty libraries to ancient churches, Josh's unique quest leads him to seek the DNA evidence that might prove or disprove one of the most sensational claims in modern history. Most remarkably he'll orchestrate the first ever DNA test on a Merovingian royal to find out if the story of a divine bloodline stretching back to Jesus and Mary Magdalene could possibly be true."--Historychannel.com
