From ancient times to the discovery of Tutankhamen's tomb by Howard Carter in the 1920s, this is an exploration into the ancient civilization that still endures in ours today. It traces our obsession with the mummies that seem to have cheated death and the pyramids that seem to have grown from the sand. July 2014 History and Current Events newsletter.
