Join archeologists at the intersection of history and science as they explore a rare ancient mass grave outside of Luxor containing the bones of nearly 60 people.
In their quest to find out who the remains belonged to, why they were buried there, and what was happening at the time of the burial more than 4000 years ago, they venture from the pyramids of Egypt to the glaciers of Kilimanjaro in search of clues. What they discover reveals how power struggles, climate change, and economic failure may have been related to the findings in the grave, and how science has helped shed fresh light on the mystery.
