Take a journey down the mighty Nile, back through time, and uncover ancient Egypt's long-lost mysteries.

Egypt's ten greatest discoveries: Dr. Zahi Hawass, the guardian of Egyptian antiquities, and a team of leading archaeologists identify the ten most important discoveries in Egypt, from major battles to mega-constructions.

Secrets of Egypt's lost queen: Top archaeologists use cutting-edge forensic techniques to unravel the mystery of Queen Hatshepsut's life and death, and unearth her fascinating story that has remained buried for 3,000 years.

Why ancient Egypt fell: the mighty civilization of Egypt stood for thousands of years until it underwent a swift decline and fall. How could such a wealthy, powerful and rich culture collapse so entirely?
