The award-winning history and science television series Secrets of the Dead debuted in 2000. The episodes of the show explain historical mysteries and recount various historical events in a documentary-style presentation for us. The use of cutting-edge technologies in the show helps to answer several historical puzzles. Along with the available source material, they also include first-person accounts and fictionalized dramatic events to increase the narrative’s attractiveness. The viewing experience is enhanced by this.
With Season 20, of which four episodes have already been broadcast, the show is back. This season appears to be promising and, like earlier ones, is a great choice for fans of global history and nerds. Jay O. Sanders has been serving as the project’s narrator since 2012, and WNET 13 New York is the show’s producer.
Secrets Of The Dead Season 20 Episode 4 Recap
The history of the decoding of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics, which led to several additional discoveries, is described in Secrets of the Dead Season 20 Episode 4, titled Decoding Hieroglyphics. Numerous ancient Egyptian artifacts were found and brought to Europe after France invaded Egypt under Napoleon. During the invasion, the Rosetta stone was a groundbreaking discovery.
Nearly everywhere in Egypt, there were stones covered in Egyptian hieroglyphs, yet this stone stood out from the others. It featured three distinct rows with writing done in three separate scripts. In the first row were symbolic hieroglyphics from ancient Egypt, while in the second row were scripts that looked like text. Due to their disappearance into the sands of time, both of them were incomprehensible. However, the third row of text was written in Greek, which was comprehensible at the time. As a result, it became possible to decode the ancient Egyptian civilization’s long-lost language.
It did take some time for enthusiasts all over Europe to figure out the language, but when they did, it was a groundbreaking achievement.
