From the Publisher
Editors Note Mark Lehner brings his many years of field research in Egypt to this definitive book. He examines the pyramids in unprecedented detail, covering the practical aspects-the quarries, ramps, and tools used in construction-as well as the conceptual ones.Professor Lehner surveys and describes the pyramids across their 3,000-year history, as well as explaining the rituals and mythology, the history of travelers, looters, and archaeologists, and the ways in which the pyramids were an integral part of the Egyptian state.The hundreds of illustrations include computer reconstructions and specially commissioned artists' perspective views of the pyramids and their interior chambers. The book is at once a definitive sourcebook and an entertaining guide for scholars, students, and travelers.
Editors Note 1 Discusses the origin and development of the Egyptian pyramids, describes their role in Egyptian religion and culture, profiles pyramid explorers, and explains how they were built
