Tantor. No binding. New. Audio CD. Dimensions: 6.8in. x 6.4in. x 1.0in.An unprecedented account of one of civilizations greatest achievements. The great pyramids of Giza have intrigued humanity for thousands of years. Questions about the construction and the purpose of these majestic monuments have existed since the middle period of ancient Egyptian civilization; in the sixth century B. C. , Herodotus was the first of generations of explorers to travel to Egypt in an attempt to unlock their secrets. Recent cutting-edge research has uncovered information about how and why they were built unimaginable to previous generations. In Mountains of the Pharaohs, Zahi Hawass, a world-renowned archaeologist and the official guardian of Egypts timeless treasures, weaves the latest archaeological data and an enthralling family history into spellbinding narrative. Nearly five thousand years ago, the fourth dynasty of Egypts Old Kingdom reigned over a highly advanced civilization. Believed to be gods, the royal family lived amidst colossal palaces and temples built to honor them and their deified ancestors. Hawass brings these extraordinary historical figures to life, spinning a soap opera-like saga complete with murder, incest, and the triumphant ascension to the throne of one of only four queens ever to rule Egypt. The magnificent pyramids attest not only to the dynastys supreme power, but also to the engineering expertise and architectural sophistication that flourished under their rule. Hawass argues that the pyramids-including the Great Pyramid of Khufu, the only one of the Seven Wonders of the World still standing-were built by skilled craftsman who took great pride in their work.

There is no person better qualified to write a history of the pyramids than Dr. Zahi Hawass, the renowned archaeologist appointed by the Egyptian government to oversee the care of monuments and antiquities. In this stellar overview, Hawass sheds important light on the powerful rulers of the Fourth Dynasty who commissioned the building of the largest pyramids at Giza.

In this stellar overview, Hawass sheds important light on the powerful rulers of the Fourth Dynasty who commissioned the building of the largest pyramids at Giza. He also examines the construction itself by skilled craftsmen (not slaves) whose ingenious solutions to daunting engineering challenges imply a profound knowledge of mathematics and astronomy. Making clear distinctions between proven facts, informed speculation, and cutting-edge theories, Mountains of the Pharaohs informs without detracting one bit from the fascinating mystery surrounding the pyramids. For our money, it's the best book of its type written for the non-specialist.
