The Great Pyramid is arguably the most accomplished engineering feat of the ancient world. Yet exactly how it came to be built is still one of the most perplexing enigmas of modern science. Few would deny it is the culmination of nearly 150 years of constructional experimentation, begun with the building early in the Third Dynasty, c. 2678 BC, of King Djoser's famous step pyramid at nearby Saqqara. Despite this realization, there are clear signs that the Great Pyramid and its two neighbors- the pyramids of Khafre and Menkaure - incorporate elements of engineering, mathematics and technology vastly superior to those of their assorted predecessors. Where did this additional knowledge come from? Did it really derive from centuries of trial and error or might it have had a quite separate source of origin - a secret mystery school, perhaps, who had held true to the ways of the Elder gods?
Perhaps cyclopean structures, such as the Valley Temple and the Osireion at Abydos, were like the ruined medieval abbeys of Britain today, revered yet never repaired, until son as yet uncertain impetus appeared on the scene and initiated the Pharaonic age in around 3100 BC. All the indications are that at this very time a whole plethora of new cultural ideas, new styles of worship and new designs in architecture were gradually being introduced into Egypt by Eastern invaders. Who were these people, and how might they have inspired Egypt's ruling elite to initiate major building projects, such as the construction of the various pyramid fields around the ancient city of Memphis? Were they in any way connected with the Elders who are presumed to have left Egypt over 5000 years beforehand? Did they retain myths and legends that spoke of Egypt, or more precisely the Giza plateau, as being their ancestral homeland? Could it have been these peoples who, with the aid of the Heliopolitan priesthood, helped revitalize Giza's ancient sanctity?
