Guide to the Giza Plateau


Attractive and informative.
Required wall covering for every Egyptophile."

- John Anthony West

With photos and plan diagrams of the Sphinx you can see for yourself the
  • shafts and tunnels in and around the Sphinx
  • underground "anomalies" detected by ground penetrating radar
  • mysterious erosion on the enclosure walls
  • large stone restorations in the body of the Sphinx done during the Old Kingdom

- an utterly unique and unequalled guide to the mysterious achievements of ancient Egypt.

The photos and diagrams of the Valley Temple show you:
  • incredibly huge and weathered stone blocks of both limestone and granite
  • tube drilling in red granite, alabastar stone flooring
  • passages to the Turin limestone upper open air "courtyard"
  • breathtaking interior of the temple
  • a dramatic photograph of "Khafre" - one of the most famous sculptures in the world
  • and exactly where it was found, in pieces, just inside the entrance to the temple.

...a gorgeous map...
a real treasure!"

-Mary Lomando, tour leader

You'll be astonshished by the revealing photographs of the stonework of the Great Pyramid!
  • huge asymmetrical blocks fit together like an impossible jigsaw
  • you can see blocks that have been individually fitted on six sides!
  • casing stones weighing thousands of pounds fit together with impossibly tight joints - photographic evidence of an as yet undiscovered history of sophisticated engineering
  • perhaps not simply a megalomaniac's tomb or a "lucky to survive" pile of bricks!
These photos will have you pondering for hours about the how and why of these structures

If you have ever worked with hand or power tools in wood or stone you'll be amazed at the photographic evidence of stone working on this poster
  • rare photos of seldom seen evidence of consummate mastery of mechanical methods
  • crisp straight saw cuts and fast boring tube drills
  • unbelievable sculpture in the most difficult of stone materials
  • immaculate lathe turned bowls from before the pyramid building dynasties!
  • evidence of lathe turning and finish polishing in hard stone

"Excellent, detailed, and useful."
- Mott Greene, PhD, MacArthur Fellow, University of Puget Sound

Beyond astronomical alignments, inexplicable stone working and colossal feats of engineering, this poster includes more about:
  • the discovery and location of the deep shaft under the causeway of the second pyramid
  • the Ancient Egyptians' simple but sophisticated method of teaching beginning mathematics
  • their ability to calculate the area of a sphere or the volume of a partial pyramid
  • the mathematical relations inherent in the ground plan at Giza, the King's chamber, and the geometry of the Great Pyramid itself
  • the ancient Egyptians' seldom acknowledged ability to do sophisticated diagnosis AND PROGNOSIS of head trauma based on neurological symptoms
  • the mysterious deep shafts recently located above the worker's necropolis
  • the huge stone boxes in the Serapheum, underground near the Step Pyramid at Saqqara
  • a great list of authors for further reading and research.
