From the Parthenon and Tenochtitlan to the Great Wall of China and Chichen Itza, the ancient world created itself in bold strokes of ingenuity and ambition.

Hosted by Peter Weller, ENGINEERING AN EMPIRE examines the most magnificent and sophisticated civilizations in history through the lens of their astounding engineering feats. Walk through the narrow streets of ancient Greece and Carthage and follow the massive expansion of the Roman and Chinese Empires. Trace the rise of antiquity's greatest leaders and discover the architectural marvels and urban planning accomplishments that altered the course of history. Learn about Byzantine architects driven to glory during the Dark Ages and witness the construction of the Tunnel of Samos, St. Peter's Basilica, and Notre Dame.

Abounding in cutting-edge technology, stunning location footage, and insightful interviews, all 12 documentaries included in ENGINEERING AN EMPIRE chronicle the innovation and architectural brilliance that gave birth to modern civilization.

DVD Features: Behind-the-Scenes Featurette
