Secrets of the Dead: Cleopatra's Lost Tomb
About This Episode
In the annals of world history, few names are as recognizable as Cleopatra, queen of ancient Egypt. Cleopatra VII was a member of the Ptolemaic dynasty and the last pharaoh of Egypt. For centuries, archaeologists have been searching for her tomb. But there have been very few clues about the remains of this powerful ruler. But could this be about to change?
Secrets of the Dead: Cleopatra’s Lost Tomb follows maverick archaeologist Kathleen Martinez as she embarks on a quest to solve the mystery of Cleopatra’s final resting place. Scholars have long believed that Cleopatra was buried in the ancient city of Alexandria but Martinez believes Cleopatra had other plans for her body. Will her theory lead her to the lost tomb?
Working with a team of Egyptians and local tribesmen, can the self-taught archaeologist prove the experts wrong? If she is right, Martinez will have solved one of Egyptology’s greatest mysteries and established herself as one of the most important archaeologist in history.
