This is the tale of 1st Century tragedy and of a 20th Century quest to discover a city lost in time. We follow explorers to Israel's Galilee where they uncover a mountaintop civilization destroyed during the First Jewish Revolt. What excavators find in the ruins gives a new insight into Christianity, Judaism, and the history of western culture. Academy Award winning actress Anne Bancroft narrates.
