Secrets of the Dead: Scanning the Pyramids The only one of The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World still standing, the Great Pyramid of Giza has fascinated people for centuries. In November 2017, the ScanPyramids research team announced they had made a historic discovery - using cutting-edge, non-invasive technology, they discovered several new cavities within the Great Pyramid. This is the biggest discovery to happen in the Pyramids in centuries.
Secrets of the Dead: Scanning the Pyramids shows how these modern-day explorers - particle physicists, experts in 3D technologies, and engineers in thermal imaging - made this massive discovery. The first scientific mission in 30 years to be authorized by the Egyptian government to examine the pyramids, the global team of ScanPyramids explored large portions of the pyramid for two years. Witness ScanPyramid's adventures and successes in this extraordinary journey through time and space.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
