Cleopatra, the last queen of Egypt, was the wealthiest and most powerful woman in the world – but do we really know who she was? Her whole life has been shrouded in myth and legend.

Archaeologist Kathleen Martínez has dedicated nearly 20 years to finding the tomb of Cleopatra, the location of which is still unknown to this day. Join us for a discussion of the ideas presented in Kathleen’s documentary Searching for Cleopatra, which reveals that most of what we know about this epochal figure in Ancient Egyptian history is wrong.
