Summary "Engineering an empire: the complete series circles the globe to reexamine history's most magnificent civilizations by surveying the architectural and engineering triumphs they left behind. Beginning more than five-thousand years ago with the mind-boggling construction feats of the ancient Egyptians, the 14 documentaries - including two feature-length specials - in this collection revive the spectacular glory of the past, from the great temples of Greece to the majestic and mysterious Tenochtitlan. Cutting-edge CGI graphics and stunning location footage reanimate the ancient streets of such cities as Carthage and Rome, while expert interviews trace the rise of each empire and the technological achievements that paved the way for their gravity-defying masterpieces"--Container
