Herhaling. Joann Fletcher explains how ancient Egypt's extraordinary story fits together.
In the final episode, Joann discovers how Egypt's enemies exploited a country weakened by internal strife, ultimately leading to its destruction. Joann leaves Egypt and journeys south to Sudan where she finds the remarkable story of the forgotten Nubian kings.
For a century, they ruled Egypt from their southern homeland, even building their own pyramids to bury their kings. Back in upper Egypt, Joann finds the next group of invaders, the Saites, discovering how they had taken the Egyptian tradition of mummification to new extremes by preserving millions of animals.
Finally in Luxor temple, she discovers Egypt's saviour and founder of one of the greatest cities on earth - Alexander the Great. (2016)
