Summary We search for the lost tomb of Ramesses the Great, then, guided by a mummy's head wounds, we recreate the last moments of an ancient king to discover if he was a brave man or a coward. We visit the stomping grounds of Indiana Jones to discover how a poor Pharaoh amassed a hoard of gold to rival King Tut, then enter an underground animal necropolis to find out why ancient Egyptians mummified cats, baboons and falcons by the millions. We discover cryptic inscriptions on a pyramid's capstone that reveal the secret of the pyramid's spiritual power, and finally ... We enter the pyramid of King Khufu to search for his true likeness in a chamber from which we can spy a locked unopened door
