The Story of Egypt
Professor Joann Fletcher investigates how the Egyptians progressed, in just a few centuries, from primitive farmers to pyramid builders.
The pyramid age ended in catastrophe. In one of Saqqara's last pyramids Joann uncovers evidence of famine as the young Egyptian state suffers a worsening climate.
At the Colossi of Memnon and the Valley of the Kings, Joann explores the dizzying heights Egypt reaches under its greatest pharaoh, Amenhotep III.
How Egypt's enemies exploit a country weakened by internal strife and ultimately leading to its destruction. Joann leaves Egypt and journeys south to Sudan where she finds the remarkable story of the forgotten Nubian Kings.
