John Shrapnel presents this edition of the documentary series about the wonders of the ancient world. In the Valley of the Kings the Egyptian pharaohs created, through the immense efforts of their subjects, the most impressive structures seen in antiquity, vast tombs dedicated to their own person in the middle of the desert. Shrapnel explores the economic, technological and human cost of constructing these monuments to a culture obsessed with death.
