About Don Wildman

One of the most trusted faces in fact-based television today, Don Wildman is a name synonymous with iconic adventure and history-based exploration.

Through shows including Cities of the Underworld, Mysteries at the Museum, Buried Worlds, Filthy Cities, and Monumental Mysteries, Don has brought viewers deep into caves, down torrential rivers, up towering mountains, and through collapsed structures in search of hands-on answers to history’s most perplexing questions in some of its hardest places.

About the class

Treasure hunts have shaped much of world history and much of the world map. And while the X’s that marked a few spots on that map have been replaced by cities in some cases and long-abandoned mines in others, several treasures still remain undiscovered—plus understanding the factors that created past treasure hunts may just be the best way to get ahead of future ones. Join TV adventurer Don Wildman to retrace the paths and stories of the world’s great treasure hunts, and to develop the skills to be ready for the next one.
