Top Ten Mummies Of Egypt

Available on SBS On Demand
Professor Bettany Hughes returns with an exciting countdown of her ten greatest Egyptian mummies - and the secrets that lie beneath the bandages. Ancient Egypt has a history like no other - nestling between the desert and the Nile, its extraordinary pyramids, soaring temples, and hidden tombs astonish and captivate. But nothing brings Egypt's past back to life like the mummies that survive it. Wrapped, embalmed, and buried with treasure for thousands of years, each mummy tells the story of the people - the criminals, priests, children, and pharaohs - who lived the history we've come to know.
