6. The Mission - Part 2
Jesus of Nazareth, was he really the son of god or maybe just an alien among us. Could patterns in British fields be attempts of communications of unknown beings? Will 13 skulls reveal the answer about life, the universe and everything?
Our host Fredrik continues our mission to discover what is genuine, fake, and somewhere in between. We will venture through fields of wheat, ancient pyramids and gleaming crystals to find the conclusion to Ancient Aliens episode 3.
