What is it about mummies? These preserved human time capsules from ancient Egypt fascinate and intrigue us, but why? Is it because they blur the line between the living and the dead? Or is it because they provide such a powerfully visual window to our ancient past? Whatever the reason, there is little doubt that mummies are some of the world’s most spellbinding subjects. And Egypt is one of the most fascinating civilizations, in large part because of the great mummies that have been discovered there in modern times. Narrated by actor Christopher Lee (The Lord Of The Rings, Star Wars, and the original 1959 film The Mummy), Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs explores the mysterious world of ancient Egypt through the fabric of its ancient mummies.
