Synopsis

Join actor and historian Peter Weller for a feature-length look at the monumental masterpieces that withstood the test of time to dazzle even the most advanced of 21st Century architectural enthusiasts. These are the engineering accomplishments that have confounded historians for centuries, and virtually gave birth to the science of structural engineering. Nearly two millennia before the Romans were building the most basic of shelters, Egypt's pharaohs were driving their architects to expand the boundaries of human potential and create one of the world's earliest superpowers. From 3000 BC to the fall of Ramses the Great in 1212 BC, cutting edge computer graphics are complimented by interviews with the world's most celebrated historians to offer a captivating look at the society that created such wonders as the Great Pyramid of Giza. ~ Jason Buchanan
