Engineering Ancient Egypt

About this programme

Part two of the documentary. Historian Bettany Hughes examines how pharaohs Khufu and Ramesses II, who reigned 1,200 years apart, oversaw great periods of architectural ambition. The ancient Egyptians are known for their pursuit of immortality, and structures like the Great Pyramid of Giza and the temples of Abu Simbel, which were built more than 4,000 years ago, proved the enduring strength of the empire's legacy and remain a source of fascination today.
