Pyramids of Giza
The very last remaining wonder of the ancient world; for nearly 4000 years, the extraordinary shape, impeccable geometry and sheer bulk of the great Giza Pyramids have invited the obvious questions: ‘How were we built, and why?’.

Today they stand as an awe-inspiring tribute to the might, organisation and achievements of ancient Egypt.
