Summary
On the famed 2Museum Island3 in the river that winds through Berlin are the Pergamon and Neues Museums which display some of the most spectacular objects from the ancient world. In this episode, we pit two skilled warriors against each other to discover why some Viking swords are more deadly than others. We compare an ancient Greek monument with Hitler{u2019}s podium to discover the secret power of architecture, and then decipher the code embossed on a golden hat that reveals a Bronze Age wizard. We gaze at the incomparable bust of Nefertiti with an historian who believes her beauty secret was more than skin deep, then find out how easy it is to make stone statues explode but how hard it is to put the pieces back together. And finally, we find out why the art the Nazis hated is now displayed in an archaeological museum
