Summary
As desert sands slowly begin to cover the deserted Egyptian village, we suddenly realize how fragile has been our link with these ancient lives, with these villagers who made some of the world's finest monuments. Djutamen sails south on a mission for the general who ruled Thebes. The program discusses the correspondence between Djutamen and his son Butamen, which gives us a remarkably vivid slice of ancient life; and how the valley today speaks clues to those who care to read them and have the imagination to understand.
