Ancient Egypt was the world's first nation-state and for over 3000 years it sustained a sophisticated culture, distinctive form of government, and a successful economy that made it the envy of its neighbours. Through war and peace, unification and fragmentation, feast and famine, it not only endured, but prospered.

Dr Toby Wilkinson will use the latest archaeological discoveries and the written record to explore the rise and fall of this great civilisation and the story of a people whose lasting influence remain with us today.
