The three pyramids of Giza, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, are the greatest buildings of antiquity - the Great Pyramid stood as the tallest structure on Earth for 4,000 years.

The result of 12 years of excavations led by an international team of experts headed by Dr. Zahi Hawwas - the Head of Egyptian Antiquities - sees evidence of how ancient Egypt's most powerful family, the Khufu dynasty, managed to build something extraordinary.
Working in a high security zone they brushed away the desert and revealed the magnificent remains of a unique lost pyramid.
