Editorial Reviews

For more than three thousand years its wealth and magnificence were unrivaled...and then lost to the desert sands. Now take a marvelous journey down the mighty Nile and back through time as we uncover many of ancient Egypt?s long-lost mysteries. It's all here - pyramids and temples, pharaohs and mummies - in this fascinating collection that explores one of the greatest cultures the world has ever known.

Disc 1: Egypt Uncovered In five revealing episodes, world-renowned Egyptologists employ the latest technology and modern archeological findings to breathe life into one of history's most fascinating cultures. A startling new picture emerges of the civilization that dominated the world for millennia.

Disc 2: Egypt's Ten Greatest Discoveries Egypt's preeminent archaeologist, Zahi Hawass, and his team have selected the ten most important discoveries in Egypt. From major battles, to mega-construction, these discoveries reveal the amazing stories of the lives of kings, queens and ordinary people. Secrets of Egypt's Lost Queen More powerful than Cleopatra or Nefertiti, Hatshepsut was Egypt's greatest female ruler...and then she disappeared. Dr. Zahi Hawass investigates several mummies, one of which may well be the remains of this powerful queen.

Why Ancient Egypt Fell Once the envy of the ancient world, the mighty civilization of Egypt stood for thousands of years until it underwent a swift decline and eventual fall. Given its wealth, power and rich culture, how could such a magnificent empire collapse so entirely?

Women Pharaohs Cleopatra, Nefertiti, Nefertari and Hatshepsut were icons of beguiling beauty and power who once dominated ancient Egypt. Their command rivaled that of the mightiest male rulers in history. A startling new discovery unveils the secrets of their charms.

Produced by Discovery channel, it is over 8 1/2 hours of a mind-blowing documentary on the pharoahs of Egypt. You are shown the discoveries of the Kings and Queens and the painstaking trouble they take to identify the mummies. They show the out-of-the-way inscriptions that spell out a detailed look at everyday life, as well as the secret personal lives of these pharoahs. From the Egyptian museum, and the Giza pyramids, to Luxor and the Valley of the Kings, and on to the Aswan quarries, they cover everything in exquisite detail, and with the best professionals in their fields to support their findings. You could watch it 5 times and see something new each time. On the 1-5 scale, I would have to rate this video a 7. In a word -- FANTASTIC!!!

To dismiss Ancient Egypt Unearthed as simply an educational video for kids would be foolish and shortsighted. Not only is it extremely well produced, it's also incredibly interesting and brilliantly edited, making it nearly impossible to stop watching it once you begin. When it comes to programs and information on Egypt, this history of the pyramids, tombs, and pharaohs, it would be hard to find a title that does it better than this one.

Experts at this sort of production, this series of documentaries from the Discovery Channel features famed archaeologist Dr. Zahi Hawass as he "digs deep to uncover new clues regarding some of ancient Egypt's greatest mysteries." Of course they cover the basics- pyramids, pharaohs, and the famed Cleopatra, Nefertiti, etc.- but they also take it a step further, exploring things like Egypt's extraordinary military strength, the reason for their fast decline as a society, and the role that powerful women played in the country's rule.

The footage is stunning, and includes looks into tombs that have never before been explored, as well as detailed examinations of pyramids and other archeological and architectural wonders. The series comprises five complete Discovery programs: Egypt Uncovered, Egypt's Ten Greatest Discoveries, Secret's of Egypt's Lost Queen, Why Ancient Egypt Fell, and Women Pharaohs. This is truly a thorough look at the rise and fall of this incredible civilization.

Each episode features an in-depth look at one aspect of ancient Egyptian culture, exploring it in a way that's both fascinating and educational. On their own, each episode is interesting; together the series is incredible.

Although children and young adults will surely love this series, it's most certainly not just for kids; anyone with an interest in history, ancient civilizations, world politics, archeology, architecture, or world societies would certainly enjoy this series.

Searched for good information on Egypt for years and this is by far the best I've come across. Was at first just going to buy Egypt Uncovered until I came across this Dvd set and was pleasently surprised to find it contained all of Egypt Uncovered as well as much more. And at only a fraction of the price!! Over eight hours of information on two Dvd's. Highly recommend this set to anyone interested in Ancient Egypt.

we enjoyed this dvd and learned so very much. have to admit there were times we both fell asleep. this dvd has to be watched in segments to stay awake. it's not that it's boring, but the sameness of the constant music put us to sleep. it covers so many areas of ancient egypt with great photos and detalied information. there are several divisions in the set and it is easy to separate them and watch them at different times. don't anticipate watching this entire production in one setting. egypt has such an interesting history and an amazing culture and should be appreciated. enjoy!

Everything you want to know about Egypt from its history, culture and key pharaohs can be found in this DVD set. I have a large collection of DVD's on Egypt and I have found this DVD set to be one the key educational documentary films out on the market today. The Discovery channel has put together a very good informative piece on such key subjects as Queen Hatshepsut, the pyramids, various tombs and pharaohs. Many new discoveries are discussed in detail with commentary from well known Egyptian and author Dr Zahi Hawass. I recommend this DVD for all ages.

Fantastic scientists, great footage, well edited - the five hour series itself is amazing. The second disc is also incredibly valuable! I am planning a trip to Egypt and both of these discs turned my head. They cover some of the best new discoveries not in my guidebooks or other books I have been reading. Very happy to see this entire series - and what an unbeatable price! Should be part of every family's library. Kids will also love it. It's fresh and lively.

Let me start by saying that if ;you're thinking of going to Egypt, don't let the headlines deter you. Two weeks there including Cairo and Tahrir Sq. and I never felt unsafe. The upside is no crowds. This set of DVDs was very helpful before the trip and I look forward to re-watching now that I am back.
