The movie set used to film the prologue of Cecil B. DeMille’s 1923 silent movie classic The Ten Commandments was constructed in today’s Rancho Guadalupe Dunes Preserve in California. Featuring a replica of a pharaonic Egyptian city, archaeologists from Applied EarthWorks, Inc. investigated the ruins in 2012 and again in 2014.
