Documentary Description


In this episode, the subject is the pharaoh Ramses, who would be known, if nothing else, for his longevity; Ramses ruled Egypt for 67 years. But he did much more than sit on the throne for more than six decades and produce over 200 children. Some of Egypt's greatest architectural achievements were the vision of Ramses. He was a renowned warrior, exemplified by his defeat of the superior Hittite forces at Kadesh. But there is one defeat for which he is remembered. The video looks at the historical and archaeological evidence that Ramses lost his battle with Moses, led by the God of the Israelites.
