    Ancient Egypt Keeping its Firm Grip on Human Imagination

    "Ancient Egypt Unearthed" by the Discovery Channel will appeal the most to viewers who have already had the opportunity to view other well-made productions about Ancient Egypt. Think for example about "Egypt Beyond the Pyramids" and "Engineering an Empire" by The History Channel and "Secrets of Archaeology" by Koch Vision. Most episodes shed a penetrating light on less well-known aspects of this prestigious civilization. Episodes such as "Secrets of Egypt's Lost Queen," "Women Pharaohs," and "Why Ancient Egypt Fell" come to mind. In summary, the DVD set under review reveals once more, how much is still unknown, about a civilization that was a lightening tower for over three millennia.
