In the third episode, Joann explores the magnificent Colossi of Memnon, built under Egypt\’s greatest pharaoh – Amenhotep III.
Joann explores the dizzying heights of Egypt\’s civilisation and the lives of the workers and artisans caught up in Egypt\’s most ambitious building project: the Valley of the Kings. But this golden age is threatened by the growing power of Karnak\’s priests. When Amenhotep\’s successors Akhenaten and Nefertiti strike back at the priests with a religious rebellion, it is their son Tutankhamen who tries to rectify it.
By finding clues in Tutankhamen\’s treasure, Joann reveals how his early death was a chance for Egypt to start afresh and rewrite history. With the country restored to its former glory, Egypt\’s fate lay in the hands of Theban priest kings. Joann retraces their final act of desecration – decades of state-sanctioned looting of the Valley of the Kings. This lays Egypt bare, making way for a new era of foreign invaders.
