Why Ancient Egypt Fell

Once the envy of the ancient world, the mighty civilization of Egypt stood for thousands of years until it underwent a swift decline and eventual fall. Find out how such a magnificent empire could collapse so entirely given its wealth, power and rich culture.

The fall of Ancient Egypt, some 4,000 years ago, has long baffled the world. How could such a powerful Empire collapse so entirely? Was it political infighting that brought it to its knees? Was it invading Arab armies that  killed the last great Dynasty? Now, scientists have developed a new theory and it's a chilling prophecy for our own time.

Select images from NASA, along with global climate models and mapping reveal how changes half a world away triggered a chain of events that destroyed ancient Egypt. This one-hour documentary examines the possible causes behind Egypt's downfall. 

Why Ancient Egypt Fell is available on DVD from the Discovery Channel's online store.
