Rising up out of the Egyptian desert is an enormous structure that startles the imagination the Great Pyramid at Giza. How is it possible that more than two million blocks of stone, some weighing 15 tons, were fitted together in such a magnificent shape by a civilization that existed in 2500 B.C.? Host David Macaulay explores the geography, history, archeology, mythology, and religion of the ancient Egyptians through a combination of live footage and animation.
