ANCIENT EGYPT:
Life and Death in the
Valley of the Kings.


Egyptologist Prof. Joann Fletcher takes a personal journey back to Egypt's Valley of the Kings. Here she uncovers the story of ordinary Egyptians; how they lived, died and dreamt of the afterlife. Fletcher blows away the crude stereotype of Egypt as merely a land of pharaohs and slaves as she reveals the intimate details of how an ordinary couple called Kha & Merit lived in the workers village of Deir-el Medina in Luxour. The series mixed science, new discovers and archeology to take the audience closer to the lives of the real ancient Egyptians than ever before.
