This instalment of Engineering an Empire explores the awesome legacy built by the French from the Medieval Age, through the reign of the last Western emperor and into the modern era.

France has always paved its own way and has left a legacy of magnificent structures. Engineering An Empire  surveys the vast range of French structural accomplishments from the Middle Ages to the Industrial Age.

The success of French builders has never been as well examined as in this exacting documentary. You'll be amazed by the spectacular Notre Dame Cathedral and the sublime Canal du Midi.
