Go back in time to Egypt's Golden Empire, for three Monday nights at 9:00 p.m. beginning this Monday. Over 3,500 hers ago, Rome was no more than a soggy marsh and the Acropolis was just an empty rock, but Egypt was on the brink of its greatest age — the New Kingdom. There was an explosion of creativity, wealth and power in Egypt that would make it the envy of the world. After defeating the Hykos invaders, successive Pharaohs expanded and maintained their Empire through both force and diplomacy.
