Death on the Nile

Episode 1 of 4

Science series solving riddles of the ancient past. Exploring why the Egyptian Old Kingdom, the civilisation of the great pyramids, collapsed around 2200 BC.

Professor Fekri Hassan attempts to determine why the Egyptian Old Kingdom, the civilisation of the great pyramids, collapsed around 2200 BC. Can science show that terrible forces of nature were to blame - even driving people to cannibalism? Clues come from the remote deserts of southern Egypt, the glaciers of Iceland and a dramatic and unique archaeological find in the Nile delta.
