Pharaoh Ramses II ruled Egypt 3300 years ago.
But till today we associate his name with greatness and glory of Egypt.
Life and rule of Ramses II
As Ramses died, he was 92 years old and ruled for 67 years. He built many splendid buildings, temples and monuments, which still show his divine power. That CD-ROM is an unusual documentation of his life, his dynasty, his politics, his wars and buildings. The famous archeologist Christiane Desroches Nobelcourt presents the greatest of all Pharaohs. More than 3 hours of video, many texts and pictures / photos are waiting for you.
Visit fascinating buildings, temples and tombs in 3D-Reconstruction models. Accompany Ramses-Obelisks on their way from Luxor to Place de la Concorde in Paris in 1836. Watch how the mummy of Ramses II flies from Cairo to Paris to be explored and saved from destruction.
How Ramses-Temple was resqued
Rare video materials show how the temple was resqued in 1954. Christiane Desroches Noblecourt (author of the CD-ROM) started that action and was supportet by UNESCO. The giant Temple of Abu Simbel was moved 60 mieter higher stone by stone. And also the great architectural structure of the temple, that lets rays of the sun go inside of the temple only 2 times a year, was kept.
