This episode focuses on Sneferu whose name is not widely recognized, but whose contribution to Egyptian and world culture is the most lasting since Sneferu is the pharaoh who gave the world the pyramids. Host and Egyptologist Bob Brier leads the viewer on a study of his great architectural achievements, and the obstacles that had to be overcome to build them. The secrets of their construction and symbolism are discussed, and an on-site visit takes the viewer inside one of Sneferu's pyramids to explore its history-shaking concepts.
