Life after death is an important element of many religions. Dead bodies were embalmed and mummified and, depending on the wealth of the deceased, equipped with both utility articles and precious ritual objects. When you think of a mummy what comes to mind? Most of us usually picture an Egyptian mummy wrapped in bandages and buried deep inside a pyramid. While the Egyptian ones are the most famous, mummies have been found in many places throughout the world. Mummies have a lot to tell us about the times and places in which they lived. Their bodies can tell us how long they lived, and the diseases and injuries they suffered from. In this series Dr. Bob Brier, whose work usually involves Egyptian archeology, follows an Italian team into the crypt of the Florentine family the Medicis and also investigates the biblical legend of the Three Wise Men.

Part 1: The Three Kings
The Three Wise Men who visit Christ are the most mysterious characters in the Bible. They are the first recorded Christians in history - the first to worship Christ. Each year they appear on thousands of Christmas cards, and hymns about them are sung in cathedrals around the world.

Part 2: Crypt of the Medici
They were the most powerful and influential family in the world. Richer than the Rockefellers, mightier than the Tudors. They were the Medici. They bankrolled the Renaissance and ignited the Reformation. They were soldiers, bankers, politicians and Popes - and they dominated Europe for 300 years.

Part 3: Murder of a Pharaoh
In April 1167 B.C the unthinkable happenad. The Pharaoh was murdered in his harem. The murderers used black magic to silence the guards and a poisonous snake to finish him off. The plot was led by ladies of the harem but also had the backing of some thirty senior courtiers. They planned to put their own candidate on the throne of Egypt - but they were caught, tried and then put to death in a variety of horrible ways.

Part 4: Bonus Program : Lost Mummy of Imhotep
At the dawn of Egyptian civilization, Imhotep built the first pyramid, became legendary as a physician, and governed the greatest state on earth. The ancients made him a god. Then Hollywood made him "The Mummy." Today, Egyptologists may have found his tomb, and it could be the greatest discovery of the 2Oth century. By now, millions of people around the world know the name of Imhotep, the Egyptian high priest who turned into 'The Mummy.'
