[edit] Information

After unearthing a tomb that had been untouched for 4,400 years, Egyptian archaeologists attempt to decipher the history of the extraordinary find. It is heralded as one of the most jaw-dropping, exciting, and important Ancient Egyptian discoveries in decades. And the discoveries have only just begun. Join a team of local archaeologists as they excavate never before explored passageways, shafts, and tombs, while piecing together the secrets of one Egypt's most remarkable tombs. News of the tomb discovery has gone around the world and it has been heralded as the most significant find in almost fifty years. The condition of the tomb is remarkable - but the real excitement lies in what is to come. The archaeologists hope they are going to unearth the possessions, grave goods, and mummies of the high-priest and his family - and with that information hoping to transform our understanding of this period of Old Kingdom history. A team of local archaeologists led by Egyptologist Mohammad Mohammad Yousef, discover one of the most paramount Ancient Egyptian discoveries ever found in the Saqqara necropolis. The perfectly preserved tomb is occupied by Wahtye, a high-ranking Old Kingdom priest who lived during the Fifth Dynasty of Egypt, and his family. Secrets of the Saqqara Tomb follows the decoding of the tomb, unopened for 4500 years, and the excavation of five shafts to uncover an astonishing ancient mystery. Transporting the audience back through the millennia, the film provides a unique and unprecedented window into the lives - and deaths - of one man and his family.  Described as a 'once in a generation' find, Wahtye's tomb was discovered in a remarkable state of preservation - with 55 statues carved into the walls – making it the most decorated tomb ever found in this royal cemetery. During the journey of discovery, they have found over three thousand artefacts. Within the boundaries of a temple dedicated to the Egyptian cat goddess Bastet, the team discovered a mummified lion cub - the first lion cub discovered in Egypt. It signals a thrilling first in Egyptology.  During the dig the team finds several artifacts including personal possessions, statues, and mummy of the high-priest and his family as well as a mummified lion cub. Directed by James Tovell ; A Lion Television Production in Association with At Land Productions for Netflix Worldwide Entertainment, LLC.
