Amazing documentary about the great pyramids..i mean how an earth did they manage to construct such awesome pyramids with limited resources...


I am a man of science - but quite frankly the Great Pyramid is unique in so many ways, the precision, the perfection, (include advanced mathematics such as the Golden Ratio built into it) that it baffles me.

As I say the others are rather easily explained but not that 6 million ton structure .

I watched one where they DNA tested to find King Tut lineage was pretty interesting.



I visited the British museum a section on Ancient Eygpt fascinating..how they can go into depth the age, how the person died etc worth visiting.

Yes, they did similar on Richard III remains and could tell what kind of diet he had everything.




Sorry missed this comment..

Yes i remember that.. I would love to sit in see how they do it :)

I have to say that selfie is not very flattering! :gigglesnshit:
I wouldn't imagine so!

I wanted it to be far darker.

However for what is was it was ok ( the sequels were shit though).


I agree the sequels were rubbish.


Ben Kingsley was fantastic in drama mini series called Tut.. about Tutankhamun . About 3 years ago it was aired


Few people realise that Tut was almost two millennia after the Great Pyramid was built - the utterly unique structure that may still hold so many secrets (unlike the rest which are rather mundane in the end).

The original building with it's dazzling polished white limestone casing stones (and perhaps gold leafed black meteorite capstone) would have been the greatest sight of the ancient world! :thumbsup:
