The tomb of Tutankhamun is unique in the Valley of the Kings and historians are desperate to understand why.  For decades King Tut’s tomb was a complete mystery: why was it built so small, why was it so sparsely decorated compared to its neighbours and how did it escape the clutches of ancient grave robbers?  Using the latest technology, teams of archaeologists are finally finding the answers. With rare access and stunning CGI, Unearthed proves why an untimely death, a calamitous burial and an astonishing force of nature led to a minor king rising to become the most famous of them all.
