This Unfinished Obelisk is the big
attraction here in Aswan...it would
have been an 1100-ton solid granite
needle, had it been completed.

The Egyptian people went to great
expense of labor to carve out the
surrounding channels using only
rounded stone balls to pound the
stone away.








The Unfinished Obelisk of Aswan
from which we learned of the
procedures used by the
Ancient Egyptians.








Aswan, Egypt -- March 23, 1999

This was from a project for NOVA on PBS, called
"Mysteries of Lost Empires --The Pharoah's Obelisk"

This project re-created the raising of a 30-ton obelisk.

I finally showed them it can be done but they still did
not let me play with the big one...
bunch of stuffy beaurocrats!

Your mind understands what you have been taught; your heart what is true.
