Abstract:

The ancient Egyptians have fascinated us for centuries. The Pyramids of the Pharaohs and the Sphinx are fabulous monuments to their past glory. But according to one scientist, Dr Sarah Parcak, the astonishing antiquities already discovered are just a tiny percentage of what was left behind. This visually stunning film takes viewers on a remarkable voyage of discovery to unlock the history of ancient Egypt. By using cutting-edge satellite technology, and both high res and infared imagery, Dr Parcak and her team will literally be able to 'see' under the sands -- and will attempt to use this new information to create the most comprehensive map of ancient Egypt ever seen. For the first time, using stunning data-driven CGI, an ancient Egypt never before imagined, is brought to life in a cinematic adventure that could re-write our understanding of this ancient land.
