The pyramids of Giza are the last remaining Wonder of the Ancient World, and a lasting testament to the values of Ancient Egypt about death and posterity. While David Macaulay guides us through the design and purpose of these grandiose structures, we follow the lives of a dynasty of Ancient Egypt as they built the grandest example even as they schemed amongst themselves for power.
