Follow a team as they reconstruct how the pyramids of Egypt were built on NOVA's "This Old Pyramid."

On this Web site, 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.
