Channel 4 are following a team of archaeologists to get a better glimpse at some of the most recent discoveries concerning Ancient Egypt.

Using drone technology and avoiding re-enactments, this opening edition looks at a team who are uncovering the treasures belonging to Tutankamun. The new tech gives us a better understanding as to why his tomb in the Valley of the Kings remained undiscovered for so long, while the team on the ground find a box of treasures inside pharaoh’s tomb, and also open up another 4,000-year-old tomb.

Secrets of Egypt’s Valley of the Kings is on Channel 4 at 20.00.
