Summary
An introduction to the land of Egypt at the height of its power, and its people-the pharaohs who inhabited the great tombs and the craftsmen who built those tombs. The program contrasts the lush green near the Nile with the aridity of the desert, the land of the living with that of the dead; shows Tutankhamen's tomb and its discovery by Howard Carter; and explains that we know a great deal about the people who built Tut's tomb-that, in fact, we know more about the village of the craftsmen than about any other ancient village anywhere. We learn who the villagers were and why their village flourished at the time of Egypt's greatest power.
