Episode 1: Ark of the Covenant/Mayan Talking Cross

Summary

Symbologist Ashley Cowie sets off in search of the world's most mysterious relics, beginning with the Ark of the Covenant and the Mayan Talking Cross.

Review

Stuff and nonsense for breathless boys everywhere. “Archaeological investigator” Ashley Cowie proffers himself as an Indiana Jones-style explorer, using his knowledge of ancient signs and symbols to seek answers to some of the world’s great mysteries.

In this episode, he’s after the location of the Ark of the Covenant and a mysterious Mexican talking cross. He gallops through Ethiopia, Europe and the Yucatan, pointing out crosses, shouting “remember, there are no straight lines in nature” and swearing when a cactus slices his palm. Just give him a hat and a whip and be done with it.
