Dr. Mark Lehner

Mark Lehner, a leading authority on Egypt's pyramid complexes, has carried out archaeological research in Egypt for nearly 40 years, mapping the Great Sphinx and discovering the Lost City of the Pyramid Builders at Giza, where he continues to excavate. His work there disproved the long-held belief that the pyramids were built by slaves. Dr. Lehner received his PhD in Egyptology at Yale and was a pioneer in the use of computer graphics and remote sensing technology to map the Giza Plateau. His innovative fieldwork led to his involvement in NOVA’s Secrets of Lost Empires and Riddles of the Sphinx series.
