Egypt: Engineering An Empire

Egypt: Engineering An Empire

Twenty-five hundred years before the reign of Julius Caesar-a span of time longer than that which separates us from him-the ancient Egyptians were deftly harnessing the power of engineering on an unprecedented scale. Their ingenuity and manpower was already yielding the world's first stone superstructures-one of which would stand as the world's tallest building until the 19th century. Egypt: Engineering an Empire is a two-hour high definition special that uses cinematic recreations and cutting-edge CGI to profile the greatest engineering achievements of ancient Egypt, and the pharaohs and architects who were behind them. Segments include Djoser’s Step Pyramid at Saqqara, Senusret’s Nubian Superfortresses, Hatshepsut’s Mortuary Temple at Dier el-Bahari, Akhenaten’s city at Amarna, and the temples of Ramesses the Great at Abu Simbel.
