Follow the trail of the ancient Greeks through some of the most dangerous places on earth... and uncover the history buried there
In the wild highlands and war torn ruins of Central Asia, lie remnants of an ancient civilisation that flourished for more than 5,000 years. This is the land of the mighty River Oxus, an age-old waterway that today stretches for 2,500km from Turkmenistan to Afghanistan. By the Bronze Age, highly advanced cities began to develop along the Oxus. The ancient world's most valuable commodities were traded and transported along this ancient super highway connecting China and India to Babylon and Egypt. This cradle of civilisation was the backdrop to the conquests of the Greeks. Two thousand three hundred years ago, it was the final frontier of Alexander the Greats vast empire. For centuries, Central Asia was the edge of the Greek-speaking world. Today, the footprints of this ancient kingdom are almost entirely erased. Inaccessible and ravaged by war, this region. This six part documentary series follows photojournalist David Adams on an epic journey that takes him 7000km from Greece to the borders of China. His mission is to follow the trail of the ancient Greeks through some of the most dangerous places on earth....and uncover the history buried there.
