Egypt's Golden Empire : The Warrior Pharaohs 1/8
A quote from the movie: "For over 3,000 years a story has lain hidden beneath the sands of Egypt. A story we are only now beginning to reclaim. It is a story of a time we call The New Kingdom. It left us the greatest treasures of the ancient world: an extraordinary legacy in papyrus, stone and gold. But behind these treasures lies an epic tale of real people: people like Ramesses, Tutankhamen the Boy King, and one of the most beautiful and powerful women of the ancient world, Queen Nefertiti." S
