As the man who performed a CAT-Scan on a subject no less great than King Tut, he is intimately familiar with the history of ancient Egypt, and is uniquely qualified to edit this in-depth survey of the famous and lesser-known pyramids of Egypt. Presented in his own signature style, his accounts truly make history come alive. Hundreds of specially commissioned photographs accompany readers on their tour of these world treasures, depicting, in detail, the distinguishing characteristics of each site. Maps, floor plans, and reconstructions accompany a compelling text, revealing the mysteries of ancient Egypt as unearthed through major excavations. From the pyramids at Giza–the emblem of the Fourth Dynasty and among the most famous archaeological sites in the world–to lesser known, older pyramids of the Third Dynasty that are the model for the later monuments, this book presents fresh insight into the civilization that developed on the banks of the Nile during the fourth and third millenia BC. Presented in a handsome slipcase, this book throws new light on the world that existed around the pyramids, on the lives of the workers who built them, and on the court dignitaries who were granted the privilege of a burial place near that of their king.

This very large coffee table book is best of class about Ancient Egyptian... There are many photo books about Ancient Egypt... This book combines graphic reconstructions...with views from above which are unavailable to visitors to the sites... It has great text about all the sites as well... It covers all the major sites and is broken down by dynasty...including some dynasties that are skipped over in other books... The color photos are large, clear and very high definition...

I have visited many of these sites...and this book is one I wish I had before going to Egypt... Its a great way to relive your trip later... Unfortunately photography is not allowed in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo... This book makes up for that nicely...
