From 1519 - 1505 BCE, Thutmose I ruled the country with a distinct agenda: he separated the royal from the common, and the sacred from the mundane. At Karnak and in the Valley of the Kings his projects helped reshape the physical expression of kingship.
The architect of these projects, Ineni, gets a look-in. We also say farewell to the last matriarch of the Ahmosid royal family, Ahmose-Nefertari. Finally, a new up-and-comer princess, Hatshepsut, starts her career in the temple of Karnak.
The History of Egypt, as they described it, from the Dawn of Civilization to the Fall of the Roman Empire. A tale of love, legend, culture, exploration and war, told through the eyes of the ancients and their stories.
