  • show Description
  • Over 5,000 years ago, an empire arose on the banks of the Nile. Today, many of its secrets remain sheltered beneath the desert sands. Led by the archaeologists who are uncovering its long-lost temples, tombs, and treasures, Egypt: Beyond the Pyramids examines recent discoveries that have altered our understanding of the Kingdom of the Nile. Kent Weeks reveals how he solved an ancient mystery while excavating KV5, the massive tomb built by the Ramses the Second for his family. A visit to the Valley of the Golden Mummies sheds new light on Egyptian funerary and burial practices. And Donald Redford explains what the skeleton of Mendes tell us about the lives of ordinary Egyptians. With exclusive footage of major sites and artifacts, including the Abydos Boat Graves and the Deir El Bahari temple, Egypt: Beyond the Pyramids is an all-access, up-to-the-minute look at the ancient structures that have confounded and captivated us for thousands of years, and the recent findings that are rewriting history.moreless
