Look out for a new series on BBC Two called Ancient Egypt: Life and Death in The Valley of the Kings.  Hosted by Dr Joann Fletcher, the series will reveal how ancient Egyptians lived and discuss the colours, smells and sounds that would have been part of their daily life.

"In a forensic study, Joann follows the lives of Kha, an architect, and Meryt, his wife who lived in the tomb-builder's town of Deir el-Medina. Their everyday lives are set against the grand narrative of the creation of one of the world's greatest and most extraordinary mausoleums.
Along the way Joann reads Egyptian love poems, discovers how Egyptians travelled to work, looks at how tombs were built and even gets an insight into Egyptian interior design." - BBC News
The show will begin on Friday 15 March at 9-10pm.
