Queen of the Mountain





This film chronicles the story of Theresa Goell–a woman who ignored the dictates of her family, her time and her body (she was deaf), opting for adventure and challenge in a man's field: Archaeology. In so doing, she achieved her life-long dream at the age of 50: Leading the excavation of Nemrud Dagh, a burial site in southeastern Turkey and the final resting place of King Antiochus of Commagene, who controlled Euphrates River-crossings in the century before Christ.
