Episode 06 - The Cities of the Pharaohs. Perhaps no one in the history of mankind has wielded more power than a pharaoh in ancient Egypt.

They were considered immortal, capable of subduing the forces of nature and of laying down a challenge to the centuries. A challenge that was taken up and won by the pharaohs' magnificent tombs and the sacred temples erected in honor of the gods. However, this is not the case with their cities, which disappeared mysteriously off the face of the earth as if swallowed up by the desert sands.
