Using criminal psychology, historical insights and mechanical genius, NGC goes back in time to see how looters got past the security defenses of a pyramid known as the Fort Knox of ancient Egypt. Find out how the robbers likely developed their master plan, including tunneling hundreds of feet below the pyramid, moving slabs of rock weighing more than 18 tons and assembling a team to pull it off.
