Storyline

Each of the four separate episodes -rather independent chapters- presents some of the findings of Egyptology, largely in the form of realistically presented docudrama, a splendid spectacle by peplum-standards, yet unusually true and hence surprising for non-specialist viewers in various details. Remarkable is the revealed contrast between the image-building clichés presented by the official, mostly monumental sources, glorifying deified pharaohs' glorious reign and triumphs and 'celestial' deities, and the more mundane reality, deduced largely from other archaeological findings, showing more human vices, misery, crime... Written by KGF Vissers

An excellent series. I recommend to all!
8 December 2003 | by (San Antonio, Texas) – See all my reviews

The series "Ancient Egyptians" is a marvelous historical docudrama. These are the stories not of Egyptian mummies and tombs, as we are used to, but instead stories from the lives of common Egyptian people, as translated from actual ancient documents that have survived throughout the centuries!

I have seen two episodes of "Ancient Egyptians," and I can't wait to see more! The cinematography and directing is wonderful, as is the recreation of ancient Egyptian settings and the use of the original (as far as I know) language (subtitled in English) instead of trying to transpose the dialogue to English. I am especially grateful for that. I don't think it would have worked at all in English.
