Mystery of the Persian Mummy

Synopsis
The story of a magnificent mummy of an ancient Persian princess discovered in Pakistan. Covered in gold jewellery, and believed to be 2,600 years old, she had been offered for sale on the black market for $11 million. But when archaeologists began to study her in detail, they discovered that this precious find was not what she seemed, leading scientists down a sinister and gruesome path that has turned an archaeological study into a modern murder hunt.
