Egypt's Golden Empire Previous Broadcasts

The Warrior Pharaohs (Episode #101)

KQED Channel 9: Thu, Jan 5, 2006 -- 8:00 PM

By 1570 BCE, Egypt lies divided among foreign rulers. But Ahmose, one of the last Egyptian princes, rises to defeat the Hyksos and the Nubians. The New Kingdom is born, uniting Egypt once again. After Ahmose dies, Hatshepsut becomes the first female Pharaoh. Striving for legitimacy, she embarks on an ambitious building program and opens new trade routes. Her son and successor, Thutmosis III, campaigns extensively in the Near East, and brings much of the ancient world under Egyptian rule. The concept of "empire" is born.
