Death And Destiny - A Journey into Ancient Egypt
At Saqqara, just south of the Great Pyramids, lies what is arguably the most important archaeological site in Egypt, if not the world. In this, the necropolis of Memphis are the stratified tombs of three thousand years of history. It is this extraordinary period, stretching back to 2500 BC that is today being rediscovered through the careful excavation work and detective cunning of an Australian archaeologist. This work has uncovered clues to the assassination of a pharoah, a plot that involved not only the highest officials of the royal court, but the pharoah's bodyguard and harem.
