Caitllin Stevens with Leica C10 scanner in the Meidum burial chamber.
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. They use their cutting-edge laser technology to scan Djoser’s Step Pyramid at Saqqara, Meidum’s collapsed pyramid, the mysterious Bent Pyramid at Dashur and the famous Great Pyramid at Giza.

Time Scanners: Egyptian Pyramids, Tuesday at 8 p.m. on PBS 6.
