5.0 out of 5 stars Another Discovery channel masterpiece Aug. 27 2009
By Harry W. Bellaire - Published on Amazon.com

Produced by Discovery channel, it is over 8 1/2 hours of a mind-blowing documentary on the pharoahs of Egypt. You are shown the discoveries of the Kings and Queens and the painstaking trouble they take to identify the mummies. They show the out-of-the-way inscriptions that spell out a detailed look at everyday life, as well as the secret personal lives of these pharoahs. From the Egyptian museum, and the Giza pyramids, to Luxor and the Valley of the Kings, and on to the Aswan quarries, they cover everything in exquisite detail, and with the best professionals in their fields to support their findings. You could watch it 5 times and see something new each time. On the 1-5 scale, I would have to rate this video a 7. In a word -- FANTASTIC!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly interesting Sept. 18 2009
By J. Salzenstein - Published on Amazon.com
To dismiss Ancient Egypt Unearthed as simply an educational video for kids would be foolish and shortsighted. Not only is it extremely well produced, it's also incredibly interesting and brilliantly edited, making it nearly impossible to stop watching it once you begin. When it comes to programs and information on Egypt, this history of the pyramids, tombs, and pharaohs, it would be hard to find a title that does it better than this one.

Experts at this sort of production, this series of documentaries from the Discovery Channel features famed archaeologist Dr. Zahi Hawass as he "digs deep to uncover new clues regarding some of ancient Egypt's greatest mysteries." Of course they cover the basics- pyramids, pharaohs, and the famed Cleopatra, Nefertiti, etc.- but they also take it a step further, exploring things like Egypt's extraordinary military strength, the reason for their fast decline as a society, and the role that powerful women played in the country's rule.

The footage is stunning, and includes looks into tombs that have never before been explored, as well as detailed examinations of pyramids and other archeological and architectural wonders. The series comprises five complete Discovery programs: Egypt Uncovered, Egypt's Ten Greatest Discoveries, Secret's of Egypt's Lost Queen, Why Ancient Egypt Fell, and Women Pharaohs. This is truly a thorough look at the rise and fall of this incredible civilization.

Each episode features an in-depth look at one aspect of ancient Egyptian culture, exploring it in a way that's both fascinating and educational. On their own, each episode is interesting; together the series is incredible.

Although children and young adults will surely love this series, it's most certainly not just for kids; anyone with an interest in history, ancient civilizations, world politics, archeology, architecture, or world societies would certainly enjoy this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ancient Egypt Unearthed Sept. 28 2009

Searched for good information on Egypt for years and this is by far the best I've come across. Was at first just going to buy Egypt Uncovered until I came across this Dvd set and was pleasently surprised to find it contained all of Egypt Uncovered as well as much more. And at only a fraction of the price!! Over eight hours of information on two Dvd's. Highly recommend this set to anyone interested in Ancient Egypt.

4.0 out of 5 stars information and more information Aug. 20 2010

we enjoyed this dvd and learned so very much. have to admit there were times we both fell asleep. this dvd has to be watched in segments to stay awake. it's not that it's boring, but the sameness of the constant music put us to sleep. it covers so many areas of ancient egypt with great photos and detalied information. there are several divisions in the set and it is easy to separate them and watch them at different times. don't anticipate watching this entire production in one setting. egypt has such an interesting history and an amazing culture and should be appreciated. enjoy!
