The hotel is located far outside the city. Many of the facilities promised in description appears to be untrue.

I'm glad I did. Bauval, a native of Alexandria and a civil engineer by trade, is the antithesis of a New Age crackpot. Cautious, objective, and humble, he provides a good "outsider's" view of the standard theories about the Pyramids, showing good familiarity with the various people and texts that have presented these.
For the New Age may have its crackpots, but orthodox, mainstream Egyptology has no shortage of its own. And in any field where there are such large gaps in the factual knowledge, there is no doubt a greater danger that scholarly consensus will be mistaken for truth. Egyptology needs fresh thinking, new ideas--it needs more Robert Bauvals instead of dismissing them as "pyramidiots," one of the actual terms used by Egyptologists. The book is a narration of how Bauval developed his own theory of the origin and purpose of the Egyptian pyramids.
Quite a bit of it is concerned with the details of his efforts to get more information and his dealings with professional Egyptologists, most of whom were dismissive of his ideas. There were important exceptions, though, such as the warmth and interest he was shown by I. Edwards, octogenarian former Keeper of Egyptian Antiquities at the British Museum--the more important because he was regarded by many as the foremost authority on the Egyptian pyramids.
Bauval's theory is that the complex of pyramids of the Fourth Dynasty was conceived and built as whole: a gigantic, multigenerational megaproject.

They, along with the river Nile and the ancient cities of Heliopolis and Letopolis, mapped a portion of the heavens, and served specific funerary functions, although they were not tombs of individual pharaohs. Rather, they were a system to ensure the flight of the dead pharaoh's soul to the stars, and his rebirth as the next pharaoh. I won't say more about the specifics so as not to spoil the reading, journey, which does indeed read something like a mystery.
The account of Bauval's discovery of the correlation between the Giza pyramids and the belt of Orion is delightful and authentic. Adrian Gilbert, listed as coauthor, is an English publisher with whom Bauval joined forces when they discovered a shared interest in the pyramids.
It seems that Gilbert provided organizational, research, and editorial help to a project that was really Bauval's. The book is narrated in Bauval's voice. I learned a lot of new things in The Orion Mystery , and I say this as someone who has studied the Great Pyramid more than casually over the years. I suppose I would sum things up thus: if you're interested in the mystery of the Great Pyramid of Giza, then this book is required reading for you. And if you're not interested, you should be.

There he Bauval looks at the night sky and from there he changes to way we look at ancient Egypt. This is a page turner and an absolute fascinating read. I have recommended this book to more people and all have come back with "What a great read. View 1 comment. May 23, George Mills rated it really liked it. This is not 'new age' or 'beings from space' stuff. His observations are exact and accepted by many astronomers. Egyptologists must leave their pride behind and work openly with the other sciences.
We are constantly forced to rewrite the history of the 20th Century based on new observations and discoveries.
Why should we think that we have no need to do the same for things that happened over 4 millennia ago? Jul 28, Sherrill rated it liked it. I never realized how versed the ancients were in math and how they calculated everything with the planets. They were geniuses of the universe. They loved everything that had to do with the planets and they were so good at their calculations and they were very good at their calculations. It was a real adventure to read this book and to imagine how they lived and worked.
They author had a great understanding of the life they lived and translated their ancient papyrus.

Until I read any of his, and Hancock's work, I had no idea about the passages in the pyramids, their alignment with the stars, which stars, the ceremonies associated with them and even about precession.
It was a delight of a book and even for those who now think they know all this stuff through shows such as Ancient Aliens, I would recommend them to go back and read it and rediscover Robert Bauval is a man I respect greatly and this seminal work of his sets up almost the entirety of his career.

Oct 25, Steven rated it it was amazing Shelves: ancient-mysteries. Really enjoyed this. Nicely written and a very interesting hypothesis. Shelves: religion. It is pretty easy to summarize the conclusion of this book. Basically, it's that the configuration of the Egyptian pyramids--and there are dozens of them known--and temples and some of their components bear a direct correspondence to stellar positions. In other words, the ancient Egyptians, taking the Nile as their baseline, mapped the heavens and seasons upon the earth, this mapping suggesting a good deal not only about their belief system, but also providing many testable hypotheses for not on It is pretty easy to summarize the conclusion of this book.
In other words, the ancient Egyptians, taking the Nile as their baseline, mapped the heavens and seasons upon the earth, this mapping suggesting a good deal not only about their belief system, but also providing many testable hypotheses for not only dating known structures but also for seeking lost ones. In addition, the authors provide a first-hand account of the results of the Upuaut robot-probe investigations of the four angled shafts leading from the two upper chambers of the Great Pyramid often attributed to Khufu.
Other than a rather mediocre prose-style, my only objections to this book are: 1. The references to Edgar Cayce which are alluded to in passing. The vague references to evidences suggesting that a radical redating of some of the monuments may be in order. The unexamined assumption that the pyramids served originally as tombs when, in fact, there has been no hard evidence for this hypothesis.
The lack of serious reference to the building complexes within which some, if not all, of the pyramids were located, particularly to the sphinx associated with the Giza complex. Perhaps, however, it was best that the authors avoided these ancillary considerations in order to get their primary thesis across. That they do rather convincingly.

However, since I lack any knowledge of whether the facts given in this book are anywhere near correct I can only say his theory makes more sense to me than the idea that the pyramids were built to house the bones of only one man.
Some of the math was beyond me, or maybe just what I was willing to expend, given the time since my last college math course. Ditto for th A fascinating discussion of the real purpose of the pyramids, this book nearly convinces me that the mainline historians are wrong. Ditto for the astronomy, although the basics seemed reasonable. Interesting read and discussion of ancient Egyptian religion. Feb 21, Jonathan rated it liked it Shelves: history-science-philosophy , non-fiction. Interesting take on the design of the pyramids that seems to make sense.
I would not say it should replace the idea that they are tombs but it seems likely that they served duel purposes. After all what better use for a tomb than as an observatory for the god of the dead? Nov 17, Jessica rated it really liked it. I'm glad the notion of slaves stacking megalithic rock with rope and arm strength is being questioned. The fact that right now at this time we would not be able to build a pyramid with the technology available makes it inconceivable that a primitive culture could have built the pyramids. Our notions of the linear progress of human kind is questioned here.
May 03, Anton rated it really liked it. Absolutely fascinating. Pretty tough read with all the numbers and math involved, but if you're able to get past that, you get a really nice look at the science behind the way the Great Pyramids of Egypt were built.

Even though the book was originally published over 20 years ago and therefore the main topics are now common knowledge, I still found quite a few tidbits I had not ever come across before. The author argues his opinions very well and backs up his claims with solid references. Very well written. Jun 22, Dennis rated it it was amazing Shelves: conspiracy.
