Reach out and touch the past.

With cutting-edge technology that can “read” buildings, ruins and landscapes from ancient worlds, this new series reveals physical and forensic history.

In episode one, the team travels to Egypt to scan the pyramids — the tombs of the mighty pharaohs — to find out how the necropolis evolved from simple mud-brick structures to the most impressive buildings in the ancient world.

Upcoming episodes of "Time Scanners" will investigate St. Paul's Cathedral in London, as well as Petra, the ancient desert city in Jordan.
