Brush back the sands of time and explore ancient Egypt! Embark on an expedition to the pyramids and descend into the tombs of the pharaohs. Along the way, uncover the mysteries of mummification and discover its implications for modern medicine.

Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs will take you over 3,000 years into the Egyptian past. Join top researchers as they investigate the mummification process and its importance to Egyptian culture. You will follow a 19th century expedition on their journey toward finding a cache of 40 royal mummies in a single tomb. Considered the ultimate discovery of our time, this tomb contained the 12 Kings of Egypt, including the greatest pharaoh that ever lived, Ramses the Great.

Interwoven throughout the film’s historic narrative by acclaimed actor Christopher Lee is a modern day forensic story. The film documents the scientific journey to extract clues about our past that could have an impact on our future. The film details a scientific first – a discovery that could help researchers understand how ancient diseases have evolved into modern-day counterparts. Perhaps the DNA held in mummies like Ramses will be able to help cure people today.
