5.0 out of 5 stars Building the Great Pyramid (of Giza) by Jackson et., Aug. 8 2003
This review is from: Building the Great Pyramid (Hardcover)
The book describes in great detail the likely approach to
building the Great Pyramid of Giza or one of the 8 wonders of
the world. The work describes building techniques of Sneferu
and provides numerous pictures of pyramidal structures.
It explains how priests or Thoth presided over formal
ceremonies. In addition, there is a picture showing how Khufu
utilized a pendulum to align the pyramid with the stars.
The work is a marvel which depicts life in Egypt over 4000
years ago. There are descriptions showing how Hemiunce
supervised the building of the pyramids utilizing dozens
of men to haul pieces of stone up to 2 tons in weight.
This book is a "must read" for Egyptologists, world history
enthusiasts, mathematicians/engineers, sociologists and a
host of other professions. This work could be utilized
in a large class project or school presentation.
It is highly recommended.
