The Fields of Yaru

Within the dark labyrinth of a dig in the Egyptian desert, spunky archaeologist Jill and her mentor Mez open a sarcophagus. They are disappointed to find it was looted in ancient times and only contains a few artifacts. One of them sends Jill on a journey back in time where she witnesses the ancient rituals practiced by the gods. Mesmerized by the experience, will she find a portal back to the present and continue her adventures around the globe and back in time?

Writer Statement

I have always been fascinated by both archaeology and time travel. In creating this series, I hope that young, and not so young, viewers can have the opportunity to learn about who came before us while watching an entertaining and fun story about a young girl scientist and her faithful mentor.
