The authors have done a great work of research here. Based on astronomy and archeology, with some hints at astrology and metaphysic knowledge, Mr Hancock and Mr Bauval take us trhough a journey in time, trying to get back to the origins of the always mystical and eningmatic Pyramids and Sphinx. Although the title lays on the cat-headed monument, they indeed spent a lot of time and pages of this book dealing with the pyramids and their main details.
Through this book you will be able to learn about the constant attempts they and many other researchers have made to go deeper in the study of the Sphinx, in concrete, to try and find the secret chambers that lie beneath the monument, and how all of those attemps have been met with a burocratical "no" from the different administrators of the site.
The authors also have managed to come up with a coherent theory about the building of the pyramids. Although they do not affirm that the Giza monuments were built in 10,500 BC, their research and evidence presented in this book leds you to your very own conclusion that they might actually have been built 8000 before what "traditional" egyptologists claim.
Finally I should say that this book is not an easy read. The first 2 3rds of it are simple and deal with much of astronomy and some politics (they are everywhere, aren't they?)
The last half of it is about egyptian mythology and how it fits in the context of the pyramids, the constellations and the authors findings, this part requires a very concentrated read.
In all, a must for all the searchers of the truth out there, very helpful at coming at your own conclusions. Get it now.
