      • Josh: This week join me as I explore the life and legacy of the man that may have been Egypt's greatest Pharaoh, Ramsses II. He was the only Egyptian king who dared declare himself a living god. His soaring statues, grand temples and hieroglyphic inscriptions are everywhere yet the man behind the legend remains a mystery. What drove him to become Egypt's greatest Pharaoh and how did he do it? To find out I'll try my hand at ancient stone masonry, decode the propaganda of the pharaohs and get hi-tech to see how Ramsses amassed incredible wealth. We're digging for the truth and we're going to extremes to do it.
