Host Josh Gates

“There’s a lot of folks buried down in these chambers.

“A lot of noble elite, high priests, things like that.

“So it’s a fascinating place to get a snapshot of this period of Egyptian history.”

The presenter added there was a high chance of uncovering ancient treasures.

He said ancient Egyptians “really believed they needed to be connected to their mortal world” and would “take with them a lot of personal objects from their life down into their tombs”.

“I think we do have a real expectation that we’re going to be finding some really interesting relics and artefacts down there,” he added.

The show is set to be broadcast on Sunday, April 8, at 9pm ET.
