[edit] Information

An exciting archeological exploration of ancient Egypt that examines the potential for discovering the remaining "lost" tombs of the pharaohs.¬†Where are all of Ancient Egypt's missing pharaohs? Tombs, mummies, and funerary items make up a significant portion of the archeological remains that survive ancient Egypt and have come to define the popular perception of Egyptology. Despite the many sensational discoveries in the last century, such as the tomb of Tutankhamun, the tombs of some of the most famous individuals in the ancient world―Imhotep, Nefertiti, Alexander the Great, and Cleopatra―have not yet been found. Of all the great monuments left behind by the ancient Egyptians, it is perhaps their tombs that archaeologists find most fascinating. They were the great focus for investment: those who could afford it would never commission better craftsmen or use finer materials than when making provision for the afterlife. Tombs protected both the body and burial goods – everything essential for the individual to succeed in their journey to the next world. Tombs have provided an unimaginable wealth of material. Although most of what there would once have been has been lost, a great deal has survived, and much that has been recovered represents the finest Ancient Egypt had to offer. In the shadow of the pyramids, an elite team of archaeologists embark on an extraordinary excavation in barren and largely unexplored "Southern Field". Could this secret site reveal startling new evidence about the great pharaohs who built these majestic monuments? And could the discovery of a stone bearing the name of the pharaoh Khafre finally solve one of archaeology's greatest mysteries - what happened to the bodies of the pyramid pharaohs? For centuries Egyptologists have believed that the Great Pyramids of Giza were designed as tombs. But why have no bodies or treasure ever been discovered inside the pyramids? Now, the history of the pyramids could be on the verge of being re-written. With exclusive access we follow the team as they unearth and examine the lost tombs, making the most important find in Egypt since the opening of Tutankhamun's tomb.
