Part 2 Death on the West Bank of the NileStreaming Video - 2007
Ancient Egypt's greatest concentration of divine and funerary monuments is located on the west bank of the Nile at Thebes. Using computer-generated animation, onsite commentary by members of France's National Center for Scientific Research, and close-up archaeological footage, this program addresses the origin and evolution of religious belief in Egypt, the offices and power of the priesthood, and the layout, function, and symbolism of the Temple of Karnak and its precincts. Specific aspects of death such as mummification and the ritual of the open mouth are given special attention.
