Deep beneath the Valley of the Kings, the most popular tourist destination in Egypt, lies a maze of corridors and chambers that remained hidden for 1,000 years. Known as Tomb 33, it has been hailed by archaeologists as the greatest mystery of this sacred land. The last attempted excavation occurred more than 100 years ago, just before the tomb was sealed. Using stunning HD photography and illustrative computer models, TOMB 33 - AN EGYPTIAN MYSTERY attempts to uncover the secrets of this mysterious archaeological treasure.
