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. With cutting-edge scanning, exclusive access, and epic sweeping scenery, join Bettany in her ultimate countdown of Egypt’s most incredible mummies.
