Summary
Mansions of the spirits visits some of the most important surviving Egyptian sanctuaries, including the Great Temple of Karnak and the Deir El Bahari of Queen Hatshepsut. It also features footage of the ongoing efforts to restore and preserve these monuments. The Great pharaoh and his lost children examines the largest tomb in the Valley of the Kings. Kent Weeks, whose team has been excavating the site for five years, explains the importance of the discovery. Daily life of the Egyptians details the many discoveries made in the port city of Mendes and in the village of Deir El Medina. These discoveries provide a glimpse into the lives of the workers who toiled in the Valley of the Kings. Death and the journey to immortality examines the latest findings about Egyptian funerary and burial practices. Sacred hieroglyphs provide a map for the soul's journey through the afterlife, while doctors offer a detailed look at how priests prepared the body for its final journey
