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.

Through cutting-edge digital graphics and countless interviews with noted Egyptologists THE HISTORY CHANNEL chronicles the pharaohs and feats that brought forth the world's very first superpower.
