King Tut Unwrapped

Image 1 / 10

The premiere of 'King Tut Unwrapped' sees world-renowned Egyptologist Zahi Hawass lead an unprecedented forensic investigation into the identity of King Tutankhamun's parents and grandparents, his cause of death and details of his reign. Part One of the documentary follows the delicate DNA extraction from Tut's mummy, setting into motion a series of cross-reference studies to determine the Boy King's family. Part Two uses never-before-examined evidence to conclude what caused his death and how that information sheds new light on his time as a military, religious and political leader. From the pristine interiors and precision work of the DNA lab to the dusty, unpredictable dig sites in the field, Dr. Hawass leads an intense, deeply personal journey for the truth.
