Deep beneath the sands of Egypt's fabled Valley of the Kings lie the unidentified remains of one of ancient history's greatest - and least known - rulers, Queen Hatshepsut. More powerful than Cleopatra or Nefertiti, Queen Hatshepsut not only died mysteriously, but every sign of her existence was systematically erased. Now for the first time ever, top archaeologists use cuttingedge forensic techniques to unravel the mystery of Hatshepsut's life and death, unearthing her fascinating story that has remained buried for 3,000 years.
