Throughout the season, Stel and Jess’ expedition leads them to incredible destinations including the Black Sea where they investigate a 7000-year-old skeleton buried in gold treasure, a mysterious Greek island where an advanced ancient civilization built a massive marble pyramid and unexplored archeological sites along the Adriatic coast of Croatia where underwater relics from an ancient bridge system lead them to an age-old legend of a lost city and into a massive sinkhole that could swallow a city whole.
