Hold onto your hats, as Calum Macdonald, Kerry Anne Macleod and the History Hunters hit the trail with the cowboys and early pioneers who forged America's western frontier. Find out about life as a cool cowboy, wrangling cattle, lassos and dressing to impress!
To haul all their worldly goods way out west, the pioneers needed something bigger than a horse could carry: a wagon. But how did wagons survive miles of desert sun, rain and deep river crossings? The History Hunters experiment to find out, making a wagon to withstand the weather out west. Cowboys used whip cracking sounds to herd cattle and, in their second mission, the History Hunters have go at making their own whip. Can they crack it?
Back in the studio, Calum and Kerry Anne investigate the honda knot that controls a lasso noose, before trying it out on their stunt bull. They also learn how the pioneer families preserved food in the hot desert sun.
Join Calum Macdonald, Kerry Anne Macleod and the History Hunters as they find out about Native American history and culture. Today the History Hunters learn about hundreds of tribes with names like Sioux, Apache and Cherokee who hunted bison, built tents called tipis and used totem poles to tell stories. Inspired by what they hear, the Hunters use poles and a sheet to create their own tipi in the back garden, and make a modern day version of a totem pole to reflect stories from their family.
Back in the studio, Calum and Kerry Anne look at some of the sign language that Native Americans used to communicate with people from tribes who spoke different languages.
Join Calum, Kerry Anne and the History Hunters in hot pursuit of criminals who captivated history - outlaws. From medieval men in tights, to Wild West gunslingers and Robin Hood, every era had its outlaws.
In their first challenge, the History Hunters investigate camouflage and decoys in an attempt to get at some chocolate which dad is guarding. In the case of the missing lunchbox, the Hunters employ investigation techniques such as fingerprinting, checking soil samples and footprints to track down the culprit.
And in the studio, Calum and Kerry Anne find out why prisoners were sent from Britain to Australia in the late 18th century and they show us a type of clothing called the 'magpie'.
Join Calum Macdonald, Kerry Anne Macleod and the History Hunters to learn about the history of the Californian gold rush. In 1848, an American called James Marshall found gold in a Californian river and this sparked the Californian gold rush. Today, the History Hunters dig the dirt on this mesmerising mineral in the garden, mining for gold 1850s style using original techniques such as fossicking.
Their second mission involves an experiment to test the density and magnetic field of mum's chain to discover whether it's fool's gold or the real deal.
Back in the studio, Calum and Kerry Anne build a windlass, a winch which came in pretty handy for gold prospectors, from cans, straws and paperclips. But can they work out their how much their weight is worth in gold?
