More About This episode

In 2011, an astounding discovery was made in Egypt's Valley of the Kings: the first finding of a sealed burial since Tutankhamun's treasure trove nearly a century ago. But more remarkable than the discovery is what archaeologists found inside: a 3,000-year-old crime scene involving a dismembered princess and an additional coffin dated from a different era.
