Synopsis
Journey inside magnificent Egyptian pyramids and explore their timeless secrets. From A&E's Ancient Mysteries series, The Great Pyramid examines questions which have fascinated explorers and engineers for centuries. Leonard Nimoy narrates this intriguing probe into the secrets of the mammoth stone monuments. Why were they built? How did ancient architects and workers construct the structures? Were the Pyramids designed as royal tombs and spiritual launch pads to the afterworld, or were they created as altars of human sacrifice? How can one explain the similarities between Egypt's pyramids and the pyramids found half a planet away in Central America and those in Asia? Join the investigation into these ancient mysteries and the quest for answers as archaeologists unveil new information about the timeless legends of the pyramids. ~ Sally Barber, Rovi
