It was the world’s most important ancient civilization and lasted longer than any other. In PLANET EGYPT, a fascinating, four-hour miniseries, HISTORY® explores the technology, culture, religion, wars and peace that unified Egypt for 3,000 years.
Through portraits of its most influential Pharaohs, PLANET EGYPT investigates Egypt’s incredible legacy: King Narmer, who united more than 40 regional tribes into the first Egyptian civilization; Thutmose III, who expanded and secured Egypt’s borders; Amnenhotep III and his revolutionary son Akhenaten, who attempted to break the power of the priests and reorganize the traditional role of religion; and Ramsses II, the great builder of temples and tombs who devoted his life to the cult of death. Threaded throughout are intimate details of typical Egyptian daily life. From feats of engineering and the most ambitious construction projects in history, to its obsession with life, death and immortality, the amazing story of ancient Egypt still astounds us today.
