Egypt: Secrets of an Ancient World

The Overview:
Go beneath the surface of the Great Pyramids to explore the secret passages that wind and twist through these ancient wonders.

The Site:
Originally built as a companion to a National Geographic Channel special, the website uses Flash-driven interactives, timelines, and photography to reveal the secrets of the Egyptian pyramids—secret passageways, hidden chambers, and long-lost portals.  A look at the earliest pyramids shows how these engineering marvels evolved from the earliest stepped contructions.

A timeline leads visitors through the history of ancient Egypt, from the prehistoric roots, through the age of pharaohs, to the rule of the Roman emperors.

Project completed as an employee of National Geographic.
