Plot Synopsis

Hosted by acclaimed Egyptologist Ramy Romany, MUMMIES UNWRAPPED is a one-hour docuseries that takes viewers around the world, as Ramy investigates secrets of burial sites, mass graves and ancient tombs on Earth. For centuries, mummies have fascinated, terrified and even enlightened. They not only hold the key to unlocking our ancient past, but also to solving mysteries that have confounded historians for hundreds, even thousands of years. Each week of this series, Ramy embarks on his relentless pursuit, visiting locations around the globe -- from Ancient Egyptian tombs and Mayan mass graves, to hidden crypts and even the disputed remains of Abraham Lincoln's assassin, John Wilkes Booth. Through his journeys, Romany finds himself in the midst of legends, myths, curses and cover-ups, and seeks to unravel the fascinating origin of each mummy and the life that once was. With the help of emerging, cutting-edge technologies, this one-hour series introduces new theories about how ancient civilizations once lived and died, and shines a light on what, if any, mystical forces or supernatural phenomena may be at work. MUMMIES UNWRAPPED premiered on Wednesday, April 10, 2019 at 10:13pm ET/PT on Discovery Channel. In the series opener, "Mayan Mass Grave Mystery," a mysterious underwater grave is investigated by Ramy, a mummy expert, who studies the world's dead to uncover their secrets. Locals think the grave is guarded by a Mayan serpent deity. When Ramy dives in, he uncovers evidence of biological warfare.
