Combining immersive, story-driven action, with engaging characters, stunning landscapes, iconic monuments and cutting-edge tech, this series follows the work of a 25-strong archaeological team as they investigate a unique burial complex, more than a hundred feet beneath the ancient Egyptian necropolis of Saqqara. Their job is to open four sealed sarcophagi, buried in a tomb connected to the most extensive mummification workshop ever to be found in Egypt. They’ve already unearthed the first silver burial mask for almost a century - what other treasures lie waiting to be found? Alongside this incredible detective story, we’ll unlock the extraordinary secrets of mummification in a series packed with genuine discovery, jeopardy, mystery, and revelation.
