Discovery is taking viewers back to Egypt's Valley of the Kings in search for new discoveries. Get ready to explore the mysteries hidden in the land, in a brand-new special. Valley of the Kings: The Lost Tombs streams Sunday, February 28 on discovery+.

The famous Valley of the Kings is a burial site in Egypt where some of the most powerful Pharaohs were once buried. It has produced over 60 tombs, and even ancient treasures. This mysterious site is divided into two separate branches, East and West, but despite 200 years of excavation in the area, the Western Valley of the Kings has remained overlooked.

In an all-new two-hour special, Discovery follows the biggest Egyptian excavation ever attempted, led by world-renowned Egyptologist Dr. Zahi Hawass in hopes to uncover new secrets from the ancient site. Dr. Hawass and his team believe this site holds lost evidence of the royal family of Tutankhamun, and will need all hands on deck to conduct this historical dig.

Discovery is no stranger to exploring Egyptian mysteries, as they have previously explored the land’s secrets in other series and specials. But this latest excavation is no easy task. Dr. Hawass and the team of archaeologists will need to dig deep and carefully excavate through the unwelcoming terrain if they want to find some answers.

Will they be able to uncover the mysteries hidden in the Western Valley of the Kings? Stream Valley of the Kings: The Lost Tombs Sunday, February 28 on discovery+ to find out.
