About the Show
Join Tony Robinson as he embarks on an epic tomb hunting adventure across Egypt. Tony travels the length of the Nile, from Cairo to Aswan, to investigate tombs of all shapes and sizes, meeting the archaeologists making an extraordinary new wave of discoveries. He explores tombs that have been sealed shut for thousands of years, and follows in the footsteps of recent tomb robbers who've been unearthing new treasures. And he discovers hieroglyphs only ever seen by the ancient Egyptians. From squeezing into snake-infested chambers to wading through waterlogged tunnels, Tony finds out that the Egyptians did death better than anyone. And these new discoveries are revealing the Egyptians as we've never seen them before. Part 1 of 2.
