An archaeological dig in Egypt uncovers a sealed tomb. The outer door is hoisted out by rope revealing the first chamber which tells the tale of the arrival of Sontar. The local labourers run away in fright except for one who warns the archaeologist not to open the inner door to Sontar's tomb. When the Sontaran first arrived he was revered as a god, but was overheard by Tothmes planning the planet's use and destruction in a war with the Rutans. Working to stop the Sontaran’s plan, the Pharaoh is misled to believe that Sontar has died (when in fact he was recharging), and accordingly, Sontar is given the burial of a Pharaoh and sealed inside a pyramid before he awakes. 5,500 years later the archaeologist discovers the trapped but rested Sontar who strangles him to death. As Sontar emerges, the direction is given to cut the rope holding the door aloft. Sontar is pinned but still living as the labourers prepare to bury him in the sand, following 5,500 year old instructions.
Sontaran technology includes the Sontaran scout ship Styx arrived in, a slab for re-energising Sontarans, some form of translation technology, and the ion cannon emplacement which is to be brought to Earth
The tomb is in a "new style". The Pharaoh's three different crowns suggest a unified Upper and Lower Egypt.
