Synopsis

NOVA: Secrets of Lost Empires - Pyramid
This 90-minute television documentary looks at the ancient Egyptians pyramids and presents theories on how they may have been built. To test these theories, scientists construct a small pyramid near the Great Pyramid of Giza. The construction is supervised by Egyptologist Mark Lehner and stonemason Roger Hopkins of television's This Old House. ~ Thomas Carpenter, Rovi

NOVA: Secrets of Lost Empires - Obelisk
This television documentary is one in a four-part series that tests theories regarding the architectural achievements of ancient civilizations. Based on archaeological evidence, scientists conduct physical reconstructions of these theories to see if they would actually have worked. The series is co-produced by Nova and BBC. In this installment, theories about how ancient civilizations cut, moved, and constructed giant stone obelisks are tested. Viewers travel to Aswan, where these obelisks were cut from the quarries, to attempt to reconstruct the process with a 35-foot-long hunk of rock using what they think may have been the same techniques used by the ancients. ~ Thomas Carpenter, Rovi
