Inside the Pyramids

More than 4,500 years after the first pyramid was built, experts are still analyzing them and developing theories as to how they were built. Today, a team of international scientists has obtained the permission to get inside the most emblematic pyramids of ancient Egypt – from the Great Pyramid of Giza to the Buried Pyramid of Sekhemkhet – hoping to decipher enduring mysteries surrounding them. 

Thanks to this exceptional access on site, and with the help of state-of-the-art technologies – including a new-generation laser scanner enabling digital reconstruction of the burial chambers -, this series probes the undiscovered spaces inside pyramids while learning about the ancient techniques Egyptians used to build them.
