This archaeological detective thriller takes viewers from the island of Crete in the Mediterranean to the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto. Canadian archaeologist Alexander McGillivary discovered a 3500 a 3500 year old gold and ivory statuette of a male god. McGillivray’s investigation into the statuette challenges everything we thought to know about the mysterious Minoan civilization.
If McGillivary’s assumption is correct, then many of the Minoan artifacts in the world’s greatest museums could be forgeries from the early 20th century. History, science, archeology and McGillivray’s find of a lifetime are the keys to unlocking a world wide fraud and a lost civilization.
