#TVforTeachers – Pick of the Week – Cleopatra’s Lost Tomb

As part of ERA’s commitment to helping licence holders make best use of the material available to them, we have decided to start highlighting our ‘top pick’ each week. We’re hoping to reveal multiple educational uses for a single episode, series, or film with enough time to act as a ‘heads up’ for teachers to be able to record, or access the material.

This Saturday (3rd October), Channel 4 are airing a new documentary, Cleopatra’s Lost Tomb, which hopes to shed some light on the ancient mystery of where the Pharaoh is buried.

From Channel 4:

Maverick archaeologist Kathleen Martinez is searching where no one else has dared look for Cleopatra’s lost tomb. And now she’s stunning the archaeological establishment with incredible discoveries.

Extracts from this programme would be perfect for teaching “the achievements of the earliest civilizations” at key stage 2.
