Here the Pyramid Complexes of Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure have stood for 4,600 years. The Giza pyramids have been scientifically studied for the last 300 years- now for the first time all three are brought together in one book.Virtually all contemporary “pyramid” books address only Khufu’s Great Pyramid. This book provides a complete detailed look at all three Giza pyramids and their complexes: the Sphinx, subsidiary pyramids, temples, boat pits, and enclosures. The descriptions are supplemented by almost 300 photos and drawings to provide the reader a detail look which can only be surpassed by being there in person with a very knowledgeable guide.But it is not just descriptions as the complexes are today, but how the early explorers entered the pyramids and what they found. In addition Charles Rigano provides new ideas on:• How Khufu was interred in his Great Pyramid.• How the first robbers gained entry and robbed Khufu’s pyramid.• How Caliph Al Mamun in 820AD really penetrated the Great Pyramid.• Why Heterpheres “tomb” is at Giza.• Why there is a field of stone bases near Khafre’s Pyramid.• The initial smaller plan for Khafre’s Pyramid.• Conclusive evidence that ties the Sphinx to Khafre.• How Menkaure’s Burial Chamber and Inclined Passage were built.In this book Charles Rigano combines both his on-site examinations and study of more than 200 references from the early explorers to the recent Egyptologists to form a complete picture of the Pyramid Complexes. This material is available nowhere else in a single volume.
