Secrets of the Dead: Cleopatra's Lost Tomb follows Kathleen Martinez, a criminal lawyer from the Dominican Republic turned maverick archaeologist, as she embarks on a quest to solve the mystery of Cleopatra's final resting place. - Drawing upon her 20 years as a courtroom attorney, Martinez has used that experience to turn detective and reopen the case of Cleopatra's death. "I don't think 100% as an archaeologist, because my first training is as a criminal lawyer, so I took Cleopatra as a case," says Martinez. - Scholars have long believed that Cleopatra was buried in the ancient city of Alexandria which sank into the Mediterranean more than a thousand years ago. But Martinez believes Cleopatra had other plans for her body. Martinez studied ancient Roman texts and investigated 21 sites where Cleopatra could be buried, but only one matched her theory. - Secrets of the Dead: Cleopatra's Lost Tomb is a production of Dragonfly Film and Television Production, LTD and THIRTEEN Productions LLC for WNET in association with Channel 4 and Endemol Shine International.
