They represent one of the greatest architectural wonders of all time… and are among the most enduring mysteries of the ancient world. The pyramids at Giza were an engineering marvel when they were erected thousands of years ago, and even today scholars and laymen alike continue to ask questions about these enigmatic ancient monuments and their construction.
This week on The Micah Hanks Program we explore the mysteries of the Giza pyramids, from the earliest ancient accounts to modern attempts at replicating their construction methods. We examine both the “alternative” speculations about their design and purpose, as well as archaeological views and the efforts of modern engineers toward unraveling the mysteries of the most famous monuments the world has ever known.
