Tutankhamun was a young man of just 19 when he died suddenly and unexpectedly. As Pharaoh of the 18th dynasty during Egypt’s Golden Age, he would have wielded absolute power. Ever since his spectacular tomb was discovered in 1922, the boy king has fascinated the public; but the circumstances of his death remain shrouded in mystery, with experts’ theories spanning assassination and disease. Using state-of-the-art genetic sampling, medical research and a virtual autopsy, this epic detective story – presented by Dallas Campbell – strives to uncover the extraordinary truth of his death, and even shed new light on his entire family history.
