Heroism. Corruption. Family Feuds. And that was just the beginning...
These four one-hour films tell the true stories of real people who lived in ancient Egypt thousands of years ago. this is the story of ancient Egypt from the ground up: the real lives of humble quarrymen, devious aristocrats, dutiful daughters and conquering Pharaohs. their narratives, and their own words, have come down to us in a handful of rare documents, letters and other intimate records which open a window into this ancient world. This is an ancient Egypt that has not been seen before: intimate, visceral, and above all human, peopled by characters whose passions and pre-occupations we recognize today.
