The Great Pyramids are icons of ancient Egypt, but they are not unique. Pyramids have been built all across the globe. What did the pyramid really mean to ancient people? Why did they work so hard to perfect it? Egyptologist Dr. Kara Cooney visits pyramid sites in Mexico, Peru, Sri Lanka, and Egypt to consider the roles of pyramids in several ancient societies. The program reveals how pyramids were used as temples, tombs, and monuments to powerful rulers.
