Episode 62: Holy of Holies

In 1488 BCE, Hatshepsut makes some of her most daring moves. She takes the throne, becoming the second of Egypt's currently reigning kings. To solidify her old on power, Hatshepsut leads a short campaign to Nubia, and then begins work on a magnificent building project. We explore the temple of Djeser-Djeseru, "Holy of Holies," the great terrace at Deir el-Bahari.
