Available on Tubi TV, Amazon Freevee
In 1798, a vast armada left the French port of Toulon on a mysterious military expedition. Some 40,000 soldiers and 10,000 sailors were accompanied by 167 scholars, who had been called upon by general Napoleon Bonaparte. One week before they sailed, their destination was revealed to them: Egypt, land of the pharaohs, which had captivated the imagination of the Europe of the Enlightenment.
