        Ancient Pyramids, Modern Technology | Time Scanners: Egypt: Chapter 3

        Travel to the Bent Pyramid in Dahshour, Egypt to see how ancient Egyptian construction evolved in this segment from Time Scanners. The team discovers that the angle of the pyramid's inclination changes from 53 degrees to a shallower angle of 43 degrees, which gives a bent appearance. The team uses laser scanning technology to determine if this was a deliberate choice by the ancient Egyptians.
