Synopsis

Part of the documentary series looking at the history and culture of the ancient Egyptians, this volume examines the rule of the most famous Pharaoh of them all, King Tutankhamen. Although well-known in popular culture, in actual fact very little is known about Tutankhamen's life or the manner of his death. All historical evidence of his reign in that period has been scrupulously defaced and destroyed, leaving some archaeologists to believe that he was the target of deliberate assassination. This documentary attempts to examine his childhood, his marriage to his half-sister, and the reign of his father.
