Seven Wonders of Ancient Egypt (2004)
At the dawn of history, the ancient Egyptians first showed the world how to build the impossible. In an age before machines, when copper was the strongest metal yet discovered, great Pharaohs like Khufu and Ramses II demonstrated how boundless ambition and vast quantities of human labor could transform limestone and granite into some of the most incredible monuments ever created – the spectacular tombs in the Valley of the Kings, the mysterious Sphinx of Giza, the iconic Great Pyramid and more.
Uncover the secrets of Ancient Egypt's pharaohs, engineers and architects and watch as cutting-edge computer modeling recreates the stunning monuments these visionaries built. It's an impressive look at the greatest architecture of the greatest civilization in the history of Africa – and perhaps the world.
