More About This episode

Since its discovery nearly a century ago, archaeologists have been trying to unlock the secrets of King Tut's tomb, but many questions remain. Why does the tomb appear to be so hastily built? Why is there a strange, black mold peppering the walls? And most intriguingly, does the tomb also house the mummy of ancient Egypt's most iconic queen, Nefertiti? Travel with us to the Valley of the Kings, where Howard Carter made his spectacular discovery in 1922, as we use the latest in digital technology to solve these puzzling mysteries.
