Following on from Egypt's Greatest Treasures and Top 10 Treasures of Pompeii, Bettany Hughes returns with an exciting countdown of Egypt's Top Ten Mummies on a journey to reveal the secrets that lie beneath the bandages.
By exploring one of the most mysterious practices in the ancient world, Bettany will reveal the lives of the criminals, priests, children and Pharaohs of ancient Egypt. From the waterlogged planes of the Nile Delta to the cavernous depths of the Valley of the Kings, we reveal stories of glimmering treasure, journeys into the afterlife and cruel revenge –some of which are only coming to light after thousands of years.
