Cinematographer and noted Egyptologist Ramy Romany has produced, directed, filmed and been featured in more than 100 documentaries on ancient Egypt. That experience makes him the ideal host for this series, in which he investigates spellbinding secrets of fascinating burial sites, mass graves and ancient tombs around the world. Each episode finds Romany in the midst of legends, myths, curses and cover-ups, and he seeks to unravel the origin of each mummy and the life that once was. "Mummies Unwrapped" also introduces new theories about how ancient civilizations once lived and died, and shines a light on what, if any, mystical forces or supernatural phenomena may be at work.
