Napoleon Uncovers Distant Echoes Of The Past
13 November 2015 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

And, yes - Once again, The History Channel inquisitively returns to those mysterious and monumental ruins of ancient Egypt in order to take yet an even closer look at this fascinating by-gone culture where superstition and elaborate ceremony prevailed on a grand scale.

Through stills, CG imagery, archival footage, and interviews with well-read Egyptologists - The viewer witnesses (amongst other things) the piecing together of many of the truly puzzling aspects of ancient Egypt that, to this very day, surrounds this once-powerful civilization.

Narrated by Frank Langella - Of the 4 programs in this 2-disc, 3-hour, history documentary, my favourite was the story behind the uncovering of King Tut's tomb in 1922 by British archaeologist, Howard Carter.
