In the desert near Luxor, in southern Egypt, archaeologists open an exceptional tomb dating back more than 4,000 years ago. Inside, they find the mummified remains of at least 60 people, all of which appear to be male. A mass grave of this manner is extremely unusual for ancient Egyptians, as they were traditionally buried alone or with close family.

Follow a team of archaeologists as they examine this grave secret dating to the collapse of ancient Egypt’s Old Kingdom when political infighting and a changing climate brought down an empire.
