Mysteries of the Nile Explore Ancient Egypt (QTVR)

Explore the Pyramids, temples, and other monumental architecture of ancient Egypt through riveting 360° photos shot during this NOVA/PBS Online Adventure. With real-time dispatches and digital photos filed from the Nile in March 1999 and from a quarry in Massachusetts in August and September 1999 during the filming of the NOVA program "Pharaoh's Obelisk," the adventure chronicles both NOVA's search for archaic clues to obelisk-raising, and its attempt to erect one of these pillars of stone itself. Learn what happened, meet the team, and try to lever your own obelisk.
