Smithsonian doc investigates Egpytology find
Smithsonian Channel has ordered a new documentary series exploring recent archaeological findings at an excavation site at Saqqara in Egypt.
Produced by Lion Television in conjunction with Caterina Turroni of At Land Productions, the four-part Tomb Hunters will premiere next year. Cameras will follow an international team of archaeologists and Egyptologists as they excavate and unearth one of the most remarkable finds in recent history, including at least 27 sarcophagi, which have been untouched for millennia.
The show will delve into the story of Ancient Egypt and how “life, death and the afterlife of this remarkable culture can be pieced together.”
