CET and ThinkTV will be taking a trip overseas and back in time to test replicas of Egyptian royal chariots and explore new insights into Tutankhamen’s death and burial on a special Egypt-themed Science Wednesday on July 10th!
At 8pm we’ll be airing NOVA: Building Pharaoh’s Chariot. In this program, archaeologists, engineers and woodworkers test highly-accurate replicas of Egyptian royal chariots, which some historians claim launched a technological and strategic revolution and was the greatest weapon behind Egypt's greatest era of conquest.
Then, at 9pm, we’ll broadcast a new Secrets of the Dead called Ultimate Tut. This program focuses on the greatest archaeological find in history: the discovery of Tutankhamen's tomb and its golden treasures, which were discovered more than 90 years ago in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings. Secrets of the Dead reveals new insights into how Tutankhamen died and how the Egyptian Pharaoh was buried.
