Stars of the Pharaohs

Follow the Stars of the Pharaohs to discover how ancient Egyptions studied the skies to tell time, create workable calendars, and align gigantic monuments. Explore the connection they felt with the stars and other astronomical phenomena.

Not only does the program include images of the Egyptian ruins as they appear today, but some of the most spectacular temples and tombs of the ancient world have been digitally recreated to reveal their original splendor. Stars of the Pharaohs is narrated by John Rhys-Davies, best known for his roles as Sallah in Raiders of the Lost Ark and Gimli in the Lord of the Rings films.
