Summary "In Building Wonders, Nova presents three groundbreaking shows that investigate engineering mysteries of the ancient world with the help of dramatic hands-on experiments. Modern architects use medieval tools to figure out why Turkey's massif 1,500-year-old cathedral dome, Hagio Sophia, has survived countless quakes in one of the world's most violent siesmic zones. In the middle of Jordan's parched desert, a Nova team investigates the lost city of Petra , once a thriving metropolis of temples, markets, and spectacular tombs carved into cliffs. And in Rome, Nova explores how the ancient Romans built the vast Colosseum so they could reenact naval battles and stage spectacles involving hundreds of gladiators and wild animals"--Container.
