Fascinating
7 October 2018 | by vishal-bondwalSee all my reviews

Found this a riveting series. The presenter is engaging and knowledgeable, and along with great camerawork and sound, brings the subject to life. Like most people, I had a vague idea of ancient Egypt, of Pyramids, mummies and Pharaohs, but realized after watching this how rich and nuanced the 3000+ year historical span is, with multiple invasions, reconstructions, and assimilations. Highly recommended.

(In response to another comment: Professor Fletcher is dressed to look appropriate in the local culture, you can see that other female researchers she meets are similarly fully covered.)
