Chasing Mummies

Chasing Mummies

While on a hunting trip in a remote, forested part of Peru, family members Octavio, Merlin and Edison Añazco literally bumped into something extraordinary: an enormous ruin including a ceremonial platform, a football field-sized plaza, a watch tower and other architectural remains.

Keith Muscutt, an independent researcher, heard about the find and recently explored the eastern Andes site, which will make its television debut on the Discovery Channel’s new Chasing Mummies series.

Episode Info

Final: 1x10 -- Buried (Sep/15/2010)

Having the chance of a lifetime to follow Dr. Zahi Hawass and witness so many new discoveries in this magical land of Egypt is an exceptional experience for anyone who can actually keep up with him! Just ask his truly-devoted archaeological workers, who've named a brand new tomb complex in Luxor after their dynamic boss: Z-1, or "Zahi"-1. So what's more fitting than going deep underground to discover five intact burials--even a murdered mummy--to complete this amazing adventure with Zahi Hawass!

This review is based on the first three episodes only. Most Americans will be offended by the abrasive, rude, egomaniacal behavior of Zahi Hawass. While he is one the foremost men in Egyptology, his greatness is totally diminished by his PHAROAH attitude. His personality is so patently offensive on screen, the show is impossible to watch for any period of time by most. Too bad, because it is interesting and educational. Truly great men exhibit civility and consideration for others. Zahi is a petty dictator that holds the keys to all things Ancient Egyptian. If you want to film anything on that subject, it appears you have to kiss Zahi's gluteus maximus. He obviously has become a petty dictator. His attempts to affect an Indiana Jones posture are ridiculous. Zahi may be the best in his field, but obviously devoid of all people skills and appears to revel in his ability to be abusive without reprecussions. Civility to subordinates is a hallmark of a great man. Abuse and self-agrandizment are the tools of a small man. It may be a cultural thing, but most Americans will not tolerate such outrageous behavior. Read more
