      • Josh: This week join me as I explore ancient Egypt's secrets of the dead, a mysterious realm of temples, tombs and mummies. How did the early Egyptian prepare their dead for the afterlife and why did these sacred practices ultimately disappear? To find out I'll explore royal tombs in the Valley of the Kings and the pyramids at Giza, I'll mine a key ingredient to preserve the dead and travel to Egypt's western desert to uncover secret chambers containing thousand of golden mummies. We're digging for the truth and we're going to extremes to do it.
