These four films (The Battle of Megiddo, Tombrobbers, Murder in the Temple, The Twins) tell the true stories of real people who lived in ancient Egypt thousands of years ago. This is the story of ancient Egypt from the ground up: the real lives of humble quarrymen, devious aristocrats, dutiful daughters and conquering Pharaohs. Their narratives, and their own words, have come down to us in a handful of rare documents, letters, and other intimate records which open a window into this ancient world. This is an ancient Egypt that has not been seen before: intimate, visceral, and above all human, peopled by characters whose passions and pre-occupations we recognize today.
