Synopsis by Thomas Carpenter

This 90-minute television documentary looks at the ancient Egyptians pyramids and presents theories on how they may have been built. To test these theories, scientists construct a small pyramid near the Great Pyramid of Giza. The construction is supervised by Egyptologist Mark Lehner and stonemason Roger Hopkins of television's This Old House.
