Today on Far Future Horizons we present the second episode of the acclaimed documentary series Engineering an Empire that highlights the engineering and architectural achievements of some of history’s greatest civilizations and the empires they created.
Twenty-five hundred years before the reign of Julius Caesar, the ancient Egyptians were deftly harnessing the power of engineering on an unprecedented scale.
Egyptian temples, fortresses, pyramids and palaces forever redefined the limits of architectural possibility. They also served as a warning to all of Egypt’s enemies-that the world’s most advanced civilization could accomplish anything.
Engineering an Empire is a documentary series which explores the engineering and architectural feats that were characteristic of some of the greatest societies on this planet, and is available on DVD from Amazon.com and the History Channel’s online store.
