Summary
Can architecture confer immortality, if only for as long as a structure remains standing? In this program, Dan Cruikshank travels to the elaborate tomb of Queen Hatshepsut in Egypt; Sedlec Ossuary, a Roman Catholic chapel in the Czech Republic decorated with human bones; Guatemala's Yaxha Mayan ruins, the site of human sacrifice and where the TV show Survivor was filmed; Monumental Cemetery of Staglieno in Genoa, Italy, famed for its beautiful and sometimes erotic statues; and Varanasi, India, the sacred city where many Hindus come to die
