Summary
  • "Egyptian Pyramids: Constructed as tombs for the ancient pharaohs, over 100 pyramids remain in Egypt today, standing as cultural and engineering marvels of staggering proportions. But many facts about these monuments, including the exact methods used to construct them, remain tantalizingly obscure. Modern Marvels travels back in time to investigate their evolution, from the first primitive, flat-roofed tombs called "mastaba" to such magnificent works as the Step Pyramid, Bent Pyramid, and of course, the great masterpiece of Giza: the Necropolis!"--Container
  • "The Great Wall of China: Winding roughly 6,700 kilometers through undulating mountains, grasslands, and desert, its vastness seems beyond the realm of human possibility. A wonder of the ancient world, the Great Wall of China is one of mankind's most massive building achievements. Yet contrary to popular belief, there is no single wall of China, but rather a series of walls built for different reasons at different times. Modern Marvels embarks on a journey of discovery, investigating the mysterious history surrounding this cultural marvel"--Container
