“The most remarkable piece of ground in the World” W. M. Flinders Petrie 1883 The Pyramid Complexes of Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure have stood on the Giza Plateau for 4,600 years. They have been scientifically studied for the last 300 years; yet this is the first book that brings together all three into one volume. Here is a complete detailed look at the Giza pyramids and their complexes – the Sphinx, subsidiary pyramids, temples, boat pits, and enclosures. The descriptions are supplemented by almost 300 photos and drawings to provide the reader a detail look which can only be surpassed by being there in person with a very knowledgeable guide. In addition Charles Rigano provides new ideas on: • How Khufu was interred in his Great Pyramid. • How the first robbers gained entry and robbed Khufu’s pyramid. • How Caliph Al Mamun in 820AD really penetrated the Great Pyramid. • Why Heterpheres “tomb” is at Giza. • Why there is a field of stone bases near Khafre’s Pyramid. • The initial smaller plan for Khafre’s Pyramid. • Conclusive evidence that ties the Sphinx to Khafre. • How Menkaure’s Burial Chamber and Inclined Passage were built.
