[edit] Information

Through the 30 centuries that the pharaohs ruled Egypt, the people of the Nile created the most glorious monuments the world has even seen, among them the largest place of worship in the ancient world. These miracles in stone were tributes to their gods and kings. They believed that man, like the sun, could die and be reborn. They constructed elaborate tombs to protect the body and house the soul throughout eternity. They created guides to the underworld, Books of the Dead to insure immortality. On their monuments they left the testimony of their faith for, in the religion of the ancient Egyptians, to speak of the dead is to make them live again. Join us, in this National Geographic special, as we unlock the secrets of ancient Egypt. Explore the great temples of Luxor and Karnak. Cross the Nile to the Land of the Dead and enter the elaborately decorated tombs where the kings and queens are buried. Peer over the shoulders of Egyptologists as they unravel and interpret the riddles of Egypt's intriguing past.
