EDIT
World's Greatest Mysteries Coral Castle: Eccentric Immigrant Or Pyramid Imitator?
AIRED:
Controversy. Conspiracy. Confusion. History is fraught with events -- from local to global -- that have never been satisfactorily explained. What caused the dinosaurs to perish? How were the Egyptian Pyramids built? What happened to the great Inca civilization? Was John Wilkes Booth part of a large, sinister plot? Was George Armstrong Custer sacrificed to save the Grant Administration? Is there anything happening in Roswell, New Mexico, that should be shared with American citizens? Who shot John F. Kennedy? These and dozens of other international mysteries are investigated, explored, unraveled and reported. Coral Castle: Eccentric Immigrant Or Pyramid Imitator? Controversy has surrounded the construction of the Great Pyramid at Giza in Egypt for more than four thousand years. How were the massive stones quarried, transported, shaped, and placed by hand twenty-five hundred years before Christ? Could it be that the mystery that has baffled engineers, scientists, and archeologists for more than four thousand years was solved by an eccentric Latvian immigrant in Florida in 1923? The Coral Castle, built with 1,100 tons of stone, was the work of one man using crude tools. The largest stone weighs 30 tons, which is over three times the size of the heaviest stone found in the ancient pyramids. Without using mortar, the craftsmanship detail is so precise that no light passes between the seams of the stones. This intriguing television program explores the similarities between the construction of the pyramids and the Coral Castle. It seeks answers to the question, How could Edward Leedskainin have created the castle by himself? And, Why did he carry the secret of his construction techniques to the grave?moreless
