Akhenaten and Nefertiti: The Royal Gods of Egypt

About the Show

The El Amarna story, spanning one of the most extraordinary centuries in the history of ancient Egypt, is one of power and religious zeal, as well as of incest and of the sexual politics of the royal harem. Timewatch traces this extraordinary period through the lives of the three key pharaohs who ruled during the century, drawing on new investigative scholarship by leading Egyptologist Nicholas Reeves, obtained exclusively for this documentary.
