      • Narrator: 100 million years before the birth of the first Pharaoh the deserts of Egypt were verdant Edens, teeming with life. At the top of this food chain dinosaurs ruled. Nearly 100 years ago a German aristocrat named Ernst Stromer ventured deep into this wasteland searching for clues to its prehistoric past. The strange monsters he discovered would astonish the scientific community only to be blasted into dust by man-made fire from the skies. For the next half a century a hidden world laid buried under these shifting sands until a team of young scientists set out to resume Stromer's quest. Their mission: to unearth the remains of the lost dinosaurs of Egypt. The discovery? Something so unexpected it would supply one vital missing piece to the puzzle of a forgotten world.
