Secrets: SEASON 5: EPISODE 3

The Pharaoh in the Suburbs

Until recently, the Egyptian pharaoh known as Psamtik I was little more than a footnote in history. That all changed in 2017 when archaeologists excavating a site in a Cairo suburb stumbled upon the remnants of a massive statue made in his honor. See how this remarkable find has led to the rediscovery of a game-changing ruler who rescued his crumbling country from vicious invaders, brought a golden era to ancient Egypt, and had a far greater impact on western civilization--and western art--than history had led experts to believe.
