Riddles of the Sphinx on PBS

Posted by T. Barako
For over 4000 years, the Great Sphinx at Giza has puzzled all who have laid eyes on it. What is this crouching lion, human-headed creature? Who built it and why? To unlock its secrets, two teams of archaeologists and sculptors must immerse themselves in the world of ancient Egypt—a land of pharaohs and pyramids, animal gods and human sacrifice, and sun worship and solar alignments.

Watch Providence Pictures’ “Riddles of the Sphinx” on Tuesday, January 19 at 8:00 pm ET on PBS/NOVA (check local listings).
