This really is an adventure into the unknown. We're going back to the Stone Age, on the trail of a long lost tribe, the last of the cannibals. And the amazing thing is, this isn't ancient history.

Our reporter Ben Fordham set out in search of the Korowai — these primitive warriors who've never seen a white man, still believe in witchcraft and still eat human flesh.
