Five thousand years ago - nearly two millennia before the Romans built their first mud huts - ancient Egypt's mighty pharaohs began commissioning and building monumental masterpieces whose scale, beauty, and sophistication still boggle the mind.

Hosted by actor and art historian Peter Weller, the feature-length Egypt: Engineering An Empire explores Egypt's awe-inspiring engineering accomplishments through the prism of it's pharaohs' indomitable personalities. As Egypt's pharaohs alternately conquered and ceded vast expanses of land, they pushed their royal architects to stretch the boundaries of imagination and human potential, in effect inventing the science of structural engineering. Follow the empire's development from the First Dynasty of 3000 BC through the last days of the reign of Ramses the Great in 1212 BC, and watch the construction of their engineering achievements from dazzling obelisks to the 700-foot Great Pyramid of Gaza.

Through cutting-edge digital graphic and countless interviews with noted Egyptologists, The History Channel® chronicles the pharaohs and feats that brought forth the world's very first superpower.
