This series was done in the late 1990's and yes Hawai Zaus is in these. I wanted to see these again and have a record of Egypt of that time period. Sadly, this is when Egypt was controlled by an iron fist and the uprising had not happened. Although this is fact, some of the facts in these documentaries is that they too are controlled as to what content is in them and what the back story is. This is always a lie. Lying to protect us from learning the truth about the ancients and what kind of life was really happening and around them. I have my own theories. What is presented here is what they want you to believe. I'd like to know what is really there and why there has been no great advancement in regards to digs and the like looking in the sands of the deserts. Only about 15-20% of Egypt has been discovered but more than 80% has not been even excavated under the sands of the desert. Why? Yes it would be a lot of work, but we have the technology of Satellite photos that show there are places under the sand. Why are we not organizing digs to search for the places? We have GPS now. I'd like to see more places uncovered and what they can tell us of even more ancient times in one of the oldest places on the earth - Egypt.

HASH(0xa5d04a84) 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!!!

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.

HASH(0xa455bb7c) 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.

A very good documentary series until Hawass enters the scene. He's fake and forces his opinions on the events.
