Cleopatra: The Mystery of the Mummified Hand

Cleopatra’s royal tomb has never been found. But during the late 18th century, an American collector brought back a mummified hand from Egypt and the accompanying text claims that this relic is the actual hand of the legendary Queen.


DNA analysis will be conducted for the very first time on the hand in the hope of resolving this enduring myster y - and the results are exclusive to this film. Cleopatra’s ancestry has been determined to be Greek and Persian... So, will the hand be a match?
