This video provides a fascinating piece of history that dates back over 4,000 years. It reveals the reason why the Egyptians built the pyramids and is the likely source of the Ten Commandments. Follows the ancient scroll from its creation to its rediscovery in 1887 AD. Find out why Biblical scholars agree that portions of the Old Testament are directly descended from the Egyptian text, and why some archaeologists argue that Moses must have read and carried a copy of it with him when he fled Egypt.

Poorly made documentary. The scenarios are so artificial and poorly made they are actually funny. Plus the narrator extremely heavy accent is distracting and irritating. The acting is atrocious. I fell in love with Ancient Egypt when I was 6 years old, but even I couldn’t watch this documentary.
