About the Show

Uncover one of the least-known yet most remarkable pharaohs of ancient Egypt. Psusennes I, who reigned around 1000 BC, was buried in a casket of solid silver and surrounded by treasures which rival those of Tutankhamun. The tomb of Psusennes is the only pharaoh's tomb ever found that hadn't previously been entered by tomb-raiders. His remarkable story has been overlooked partly because the initial discovery was made in 1940, overshadowed by the outbreak of World War II.
