Today on Discovery Enterprise we are going on an expedition into the heart of the Amazon in search of Lost Cities.

A new generation of explorers armed with 21st-century technology has uncovered remarkable evidence that could reinvent our understanding of the Amazon and the indigenous peoples who lived there.
