World series of dating review

15 Oct

The first two episodes explored the work of Howard Carter and his archaeological quest in Egypt in the early part of the twentieth century.

Tutankhamun was married to his own sister but the union failed to produce an heir to secure the future of the kingdom.

Stories of the curse begin to circulate as Carter breaks through into the burial chamber to reveal an intact tomb.

As Lacau threatens to take over the excavation and several of the experts quit Canarvon questions Carter over his leadership and his relationship with Evelyn.

The Carnarvons return to Egypt at the end of the war and Carter recommences his excavation but with a continued lack of results leading to doubts that any undiscovered tombs are left in the valley the funding is finally cut in 1922.

Tutankhamun's tomb was well concealed to ensure his undisturbed afterlife.
