MUMMIES: SECRETS OF THE PHARAOHS


In the late 18th century, with the discovery of the Rosetta Stone and the subsequent code-cracking that allowed researchers to understand hieroglyphs, the popularity of Egypt and its hidden secrets exploded. Egypt-mania hit the high societies of Paris, New York and London.

But when a few curious antiquities suddenly appeared on the black market in the 1870s, a handful of people in the world who could decipher hieroglyphs knew that these were no ordinary relics, for they bore the marks of kings. These were different. In spite of all of the energy and money spent to unearth ancient treasures, no one had found the tomb of a Pharaoh. Until now.

What is it about mummies? These preserved human time capsules from ancient Egypt fascinate and intrigue us, but why? Is it because they blur the line between the living and the dead? Or is it because they provide such a powerfully visual window to our ancient past? Whatever the reason, there is little doubt that mummies are some of the world’s most spellbinding subjects. And Egypt is one of the most fascinating civilizations, in large part because of the great mummies that have been discovered there in modern times.

Narrated by actor Christopher Lee (The Lord Of The Rings, Star Wars, and the original 1959 film The Mummy), Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs explores the mysterious world of ancient Egypt through the fabric of its ancient mummies. The Egyptians’ mummy-making culture was not the first, the last, or even the longest. But to many, it was the greatest.
