Part of the documentary series examining the history and culture of the ancient Egyptians. This volume examines the unusual reign of Hatshepsut, the daughter of a king who pushed aside the rightful heir and assumed control of Egypt for 22 years, garbed in the false beard of a Pharaoh. Presiding over a time of peace and prosperity, Hatshepsut also launched expeditions into the land of Punt (present-day Somalia) in search of ivory and gold.
