Ten percent of the earth's land mass is covered by glaciers. Due to rapid melting, the ice is revealing perfectly preserved remnants of the past.
In the Alps, glacial archaeologists find more than prehistoric clothing and tools. They discover the remains of a dark chapter in history: human remains and equipment from the wars of the 20th century. During World War I, soldiers in the Alps fought under extreme conditions on the highest front of the war.
Frozen Secrets takes viewers on a fascinating journey through time. High in the mountains against a breathtaking, icy backdrop, glacial archaeologists set out on adventurous expeditions on glacier toes to unearth treasures from the ice. With detective-like style, the stories behind the finds are carefully reconstructed.
