Documentary Description

1300 BC: The mighty Egyptian civilization is in its golden age. Its ruler is Ramses II, a man who intends to be the greatest of the Pharaohs. He will make his mark by building: vast statues; towering obelisks; temples carved from the living rock. Ramses is a giant of a man: he dominates his kingdom for sixty seven years, pushing it on to ever greater glory. The ruins of what he built still stand, but thirty three centuries on; with the aid of new research and cutting edge graphics technology, the true scale of his ambition can now be fully revealed.

We reconstruct the grand hypostyle hall at Karnak; explore the technical innovation and engineering skill that produced the temple at Abu Simbel; we rebuild the Ramesseum as he would have seen it, and uncover how the extraordinary tomb that Ramses built for himself would have looked when his body was finally laid there.
