S01E10 (2011) The host of this grand attempt? None other than actor Brendan Fraser, who has some experience in the area. Sort of. The man did play adventurer Rick OâConnell, who had an exciting experience or three in blockbuster âThe Mummyâ films. âWhat Lies Beneathâ will follow the efforts of archaeologist Sarah Parcak to uncover ancient Egypt, 99 percent of which has remained buried. One area of particular focus is the former capital of Itjitawy. What exactly makes the city so important? According to Mr. Fraser, 'It was a place of infamy, political intrigue, violent palace coups and murder.' The only catch? The city has never been found or will Parcak finally uncover it?
