This book will turn everything that you thought you knew about the Great Pyramid on its head, for if the author is correct in his assumption that the internal features of the structure are the hard evidence that prove conclusively how the Great Pyramid was constructed, he truly has solved this five thousand year old mystery. The author takes us on a journey as he reconstructs the Great Pyramid course by course. Along the way, we discover why each of the chambers, passageways and shafts in this great structure were created. Long before any sort of pattern emerges the reader is left in no doubt as to the great physical and logistical issues the builders of the Great Pyramid had to deal with in order to establish this structure on the Giza Plateau. It becomes abundantly clear at a very early stage of the reconstruction that the construction of the Great Pyramid was not a simple matter of building up the structure one course at a time. We discover that the greatest challenge of all in constructing such a structure is in maintaining the pyramid shape and it is this factor more than any other that determined the internal shape of the structure at every stage of the construction.
Could the internal spaces - the chambers, passageways and shafts -within these structures really hold the key to how they were constructed? The author makes the claim that this book is an A to Z of pyramid construction based on the true construction methods of the ancient pyramid builders. This is the Great Pyramid as you've never seen it before, constructed at a time when the climate in Egypt was very different from the climate of today. Once the reader truly understands what it took to construct this last remaining wonder of the ancient world they will find it very difficult to disagree with the astonishing claims of this author.
Robert Carson is not an archaeologist or an historian his background is in engineering. He has had a lifelong fascination with ancient civilisations in general but his particular interest is in the structures that these ancient societies created. He believes that these structures hold the key to gaining a much better understanding of the people who constructed them. Having studied and researched this subject for years he finally got lucky and found the key to how these structures had been constructed in the nineties. This book, The Great Pyramid - The Inside Story - a step by step guide to how the Great Pyramid was constructed - will hopefully prove to your satisfaction that he really has solved the five thousand year old mystery of how all of these massive structures - the mastabas, stepped pyramids and the Super Pyramids - were created.
