In 1570 BC, Rome was no more than a soggy marsh and the Acropolis was just an empty rock, but Egypt was already 1,000 years old.

Although the pyramid builders were gone, Egypt still awaited its New Kingdom, an empire forged by conquest and remembered for eons.

Now you can enjoy "Egypt's Golden Empire" and bring the New Kingdom to fresh life in your own home. Using original letters and records, the program evokes the passion and riches of an age when Egypt was the center of the known world, where pharaohs were called gods, and amazing cities, tombs and temples were built.

Led by a dynasty of enormous personalities whose dramatic lives changed the course of civilization, "Egypt's Golden Empire" presents the most extraordinary period in Egyptian history: from 1570 BC to 1070 BC, when the Egyptian Empire reached its peak. Amazingly preserved private letters and public records capture the unique passion, the remarkable power and the incomprehensible riches of the age.

From Ahmose, Hatshepsut and Amenhotep III, to Akenhaten, Tutankhamen and Ramesses the Great, "Egypt's Golden Empire" reveals with startling clarity the hopes and dreams of the pharaohs and ordinary citizens who created the first great empire in history.
