Raiders of the Lost Civilizations


This documentary is the story of an archeologist's race against the clock to explore and preserve what remains of a mysterious Pre-Columbian civilization in Peru.

He confronts the looters of ancient tombs, impoverished peasants tempted by the offerings of the middlemen who work for international traffickers and collectors.

A fascinating behind-the-scenes investigation of the international trade in artefacts, a business that ranks third worldwide after drugs and arms.
