"Egypt Pyramids and Mummies," a five-DVD set, will enthrall both connoisseurs and neophytes. In this superb production, History offers its viewers a broad panorama of Ancient Egypt, which will allow them to further expand their horizon on this subject. The documentaries "Cradle of Religions," "Sacred Space", "Death & Rebirth," and "Land of Magic" will be of particular interest to anyone who is under the spell of this prestigious ancient civilization. The documentaries cast a light on aspects of the Ancient Egyptian society that are rarely covered in such a depth in mainstream productions dedicated to Ancient Egypt. In conclusion, this DVD set is a great addition to the collection of anyone interested in the civilization that rose and collapsed along the banks of the Nile.
