Joann Fletcher – Most Ruthless, Greatest Female Pharaohs w/t (1 x 60′) – A documentary about four powerful women from ancient Egypt. Professor Joann Fletcher explores important female figures ranging from Queen Hetepheres in the age of the pyramids, through to Nefertari – who has probably the most spectacular tomb of all in the Valley of the Queens. Arguing that women could rule ancient Egypt, Joann explores a culture that placed women and female gods at the very heart of its story.
