Egypt 3D: Secrets of the Mummies Overview

What is it about mummies? Where does the human intrigue with mummies come from? They fascinate and they intrigue us, but why? Is it because they blur the line between the living and the dead? Is it because they provide such a powerfully visual window to our ancient past? Whatever the reason, there is little doubt that mummies are one of the world's most fascinating subjects. And there is perhaps no more fascinating civilization than Egypt, in large part because of the great mummies that have been discovered in modern times.

In Egypt 3D: Secrets of the Mummies, audiences will explore the fascinating world of Egypt through its ancient mummies and monuments. They will be taken back in time to a world full of wonder, mystique and intrigue, exploring Egypt through the dramatic canvass of the large-format screen. Modern Egyptologists have coined the term "embalmed evidence" to convey how mummies can provide clues to the distant past. By studying mummies, and their archeological resting places, we obtain a unique window into ancient Egyptian culture, religion, medicine, and so many other aspects of the daily life of this great ancient civilization. The Egyptians' mummy-making culture was not the first, nor the last, or even the longest. But it was the greatest. Audiences will discover how the ancient Egyptians developed a more complex belief system, magic, and art of embalming their dead than any other people in history.
