In Egypt's Valley of the Kings a skull has been found that could change our view about the Bible forever. Found by famed archaeologist Dr Kent Weeks, the skull is believed to belong to the firstborn son of Rameses The Great. According to religious text, the child was struck down by God - divine punishment for Rameses not letting Moses and the Children of Israel leave Egypt. Now, more than 3000 years after his death, Dr Weeks believes he can finally discover how Rameses' son really died. Could the truth change our view of the Bible forever?
Rameses was the greatest of all the ancient Egyptian pharaohs, and his life is remembered in history as both mighty and shrouded in mystery. During his 66-year reign, he conquered a larger empire than any other ruler, and built many monuments to his exploits. He also sired over 100 children, one of whom might have been the Biblical Moses. The unearthed tombs of at least four of Rameses' sons has introduced startling new possibilities: the body of his firstborn shows signs of holding clues as to the veracity of certain Biblical assumptions, as well as proving Rameses' role in an event that shaped the development of three monolithic religions. This stunning documentary is hosted by Kent Weeks, the archaeologist who discovered what may be the remains of Rameses' sons, and who has devoted his life to solving this mystery. With state-of-the-art CG animation and detailed, realistic recreations of crucial moments in the emperor's life, the puzzle unfolds in and exhaustive and spectacular exploration.
