Set your recorders!

For those of you in the UK and interested in the history, set your recorders for 9pm Friday March 22nd, BBC2 or BBC HD.

Dr Joann Fletcher is fronting Ancient Egypt: Life and Death. It appears to be about the inhabitants of Deir el Medina and how they helped create the tombs in the VoK.

Looks like it will be a very interesting programme!

I'm sure it will be, don't forget she won a Bafta for the last one she did!

Also, I forgot to add that it's a two part programme.

It was great wasn't it? I'm really looking forward to the next programme.

I think it will do a lot to encourage people to visit Luxor because Joann made it so interesting and personal. Plus, in the great scheme of things, the artifacts were comparable to the amount found with Tutankhamun. It's a shame they're in Turin, I can feel a visit coming on! LOL

" ... Turin. I can feel a visit coming on!"

You won't be disappointed if you make a trip to Turin for the Egyptological collection - it is one of the finest in Europe!
