Fans of adventure films should be familiar with the name Imhotep. He's the ancient Egyptian raised from the dead in The Mummy and The Mummy Returns. Far from being the crazed killer portrayed in the movies, this thrilling documentary shows Imhotep to be one of the most important figures in ancient history. It was he who designed the first pyramid, made great strides in medicine and was elevated to the status of god by his subjects. Deep beneath the sands of Saqqara, Egypt's fabled City of the Dead, archaeologists now believe they could have found his long-lost burial chamber.
