NOVA Online/Pyramids—The Inside Story

How the pyramids of Egypt were built

(Detailed images and 360 panoramas. Looks great on a Smartboard or big screen. Much of the content is Flash, and so iPad users will have to launch Puffin or Rover browsers.)

Follow a team as they reconstruct how the pyramids of Egypt were built on NOVA's "This Old Pyramid."  Wander through the chambers and passageways of the Great Pyramid, and learn about the pharaohs for whom these monumental tombs were built. You can also follow the 1997 field season of a team of archaeologists as they excavated the bakery that fed the pyramid builders.
