5. The Mission - Part 1

If aliens did visit us, what was their mission? Is the Annunaki a set of gods or something more sinister? Is there a hideous creature hidden away in Saqqara Egypt? Was Homo Erectus victims of genetic experiments?

We head out with our host Fredrik once more to discover what is genuine, fake, and somewhere in between. In this first episode of the year we dig down into episode 3 of Ancient Aliens. Join us on an all new adventure into the world of Ancient Aliens.
