The series revealing the character of South America's ancient peoples concludes as Dr Jago Cooper investigates the rise and fall of Chimor, the continent's first empire. In the spectacular deserts of Peru, the archaeologist explores the vast ruins of a lost city, and learns how the inhabitants once thrived in an extreme climate. He also takes a look at the customs and rituals of the civilisation, in which people made shocking sacrifices to their gods under the watchful eye of an all-powerful monarchy.
