Summary
Shows how a colossal obelisk could have been quarried, chiseled, shipped up the Nile, and erected on a base in front of a temple using only stones, ropes, logs, and dirt, and a team builds an 18-foot pyramid, trying out some clever construction theories.
Uncover the secrets of ancient civilizations as NOVA journeys to an archaeological site where teams of experts use traditional techniques to test their hypotheses. Face the challenge of quarrying, chiseling, hauling, and mounting an obelisk—using stones, ropes, logs, and dirt.
