The history of the largest ancient civilization begins with a visit to Elefantine Island known as the Southern Gate of Egypt. This island on the Nile was a worship center of gods of the Great River of Egypt since prehistoric times. In today’s Luxor –in ancient Thebes– a film crew visits archaeologists discovering the secrets of Hatshepsut, the female Pharaoh, one of the most mysterious figures of old Egypt. In Saqqara, prof. Karol Mysliwiec presents recent discoveries at a cemetery from the age of the Old Kingdom. In the grave of the vizier Meref-Nebef we learn about the life of the highest state official at the court of Pharaoh Teti.
