Mystery Explored: Ramesses: Visions of Greatness
Expedition Dates: April 27 - May 17, 2006


Was Ramesses II Egypt’s Greatest Pharaoh? He built soaring statues, grand temples, and monuments to himself throughout Egypt. He even declared himself a living god. What forces drove him to be the greatest pharaoh? I traveled to Egypt to try my hand at stone masonry, decoded the propaganda of the pharaohs, and got hi-tech to discover if Ramesses lI was as “great” as he thought he was.
