Walking with Ancients documents a scientific paradigm shift in real time as the discovery of ancient footprints in New Mexico challenges everything we thought we knew about human history. It follows renowned archaeologist Ciprian Ardelean and other renegade scientists as they find evidence that humans arrived in the Americas far earlier than previously thought. We follow these scientists as they unearth new evidence from the pristine Canadian Arctic all the way down to southern Chile, with emotional moments discovery and crushing disappointment captured live on camera. It is an epic roller coaster ride as they work to change history — together.
