Episode 8: Drain the Ocean: Egypt's Lost Wonders

Summary

Metaphorically speaking, experts `pull the plug' on the River Nile, looking at historical discoveries found at its bottom. The programme addresses issues such as the exact identity of the Pharos Lighthouse of Alexandria, why the so-called Abydos boats are buried in the desert and cites those who built 15 forts on the Nile that never saw battle.
