    Black Pharaohs: Empire of Gold, 1

    "It's a land of pyramids, gold, and ancient treasure, but it's not Egypt. It's present-day Sudan, once home to the glorious kingdom of Kush. Now, archaeologists are using every means possible - from robots to rock climbers - in their search for clues about this long-neglected culture. Once the Kushites filled the pharaohs' coffers with gold and, for a time, they even ruled over all of Egypt, but only now is their real story beginning to emerge."

    Tut's Treasures

    Golden Mask, Season 1 | Episode 2

    In 1922 Howard Carter made a stunning discovery - King Tutankhamun's tomb. Crammed inside were over 5,000 priceless artefacts of every type - from gold slippers to finely tooled daggers, the remains of chariots and the boy king's show-stopping solid gold death mask. For the first time in 90 years these incredible treasures are being brought back together as the starring attraction in Cairo's brand-new #750 million Grand Egyptian Museum. Now, advances in modern technology are uncovering new secrets about a boy king who died before his twentieth birthday and the ancient land he ruled. King Tut's incredible death mask - 24lbs of pure gold - has always been the subject of debate with many scholars believing its damaged nameplate, known as a cartouche, and different colours of gold meant it was never made specifically for him. It was more likely made for his female ancestor, Nefertiti. And, until now, the evidence seems to back that theory up. New analysis of some of his many burial goods, including 'Shabtis'- miniature effigies that were meant to act as servants in the afterlife- suggest up to a quarter of all the treasures in the tomb were made for someone else. Closer analysis at the Grand Egyptian Museum of the funeral beds also paint a picture of a rushed burial where the funeral planners were caught by surprise at Tutankhamun's sudden, unexpected death and there wasn't enough time to provide the regal burial a pharaoh would expect. So could the death mask- the world's most famous ancient object- also be a reused artefact from another tomb? Now the mask has been subjected to the most forensically intense investigation ever to try and answer that question once and for all. The result flies in the face of much of the other evidence from the tomb. Tutankhamun may have been buried with many second hand goods but the mask wasn't one of them - the pharaoh's death mask was made especially for him and in only 70 days.

    Stonehenge Decoded: Secrets Revealed, 1

    Stonehenge Decoded (2009) exposed the puzzle that is Stonehenge. There were many disputed theories about this giant stone circle: the Romans imagined a temple to the sun god Apollo. Medieval legend said it was the work of the wizard Merlin. Professor Mike Parker Pearson and his team unearthed evidence that reveals Stonehenge may not have stood in isolation but was part of one of the largest prehistoric religious complexes in the world. Within this complex they discovered remains of the largest prehistoric settlement in northern Europe. And at its center stood an extraordinary near replica of Stonehenge itself, built not in stone but wood. Professor Pearson believed at the time that Stonehenge was not a temple to the Sun or prehistoric Gods, but a great monument dedicated to the ancestors of these Stone Age people, built to house the spirits of the dead. And recent discoveries at Stonehenge and other Neolithic sites may have finally proved his theory. June 2018 - At the German Stonehenge-Pommelte site, archaeologist unearthed the dismembered remains of more than 20 men, women and children. This find suggests that this site was used for ritual sacrifices. The ritual use of this site and its dates connect it to Stonehenge and other Neolithic circles in Britain. In this UPDATE, we will use interviews, archive footage and original filming to reveal new discoveries and provide insight into these archaeological mysteries. Stonehenge Decoded: Secrets Revealed will transport us back 4,500 years to the world of Stonehenge and Pommelte and put the last 10 years of science and discovery into focus.
