A fascinating look into the real history of the ancient civilizations, including revelatory new evidence which challenges accepted truths about the history of Egypt.
The mysteries of Ancient Egypt have proved an endless source of fascination to the world. Here, for the first time, international bestselling author Robert Temple seeks to expose the real history of this ancient civilization. In this fascinating study, Temple unearths revelatory new evidence which challenges accepted truths about the history of Egypt and questions the evidence which most Egyptologists have relied on since 1910. In doing so he has sought to answer the two big questions which have until now been taken for granted: Where did Egyptian civilization come from? And who built the pyramids, and why?
With unprecedented access to lost portions of the valley temple which have long been closed to archaeologists, Temple presents a sensational, reconstructed story of Egypt which exposes a magnitude of previously unseen evidence, including:
Pinpointing exact locations of unopened royal tombs
Presenting re-datings of key monuments using a revolutionary
new dating technique
Exposing faked evidence which has been credulously accepted by the Egyptological community
Revealing who really built the pyramids
Unearthing the real truth about Egypt's most amazing pyramid, Giza
Packed full of fantastic, never-before-seen photographs, which provide hard evidence to support Temple's claims, Egyptian Dawn opens many paths to the truth in the story of Egypt.

Book Description Cornerstone. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Egyptian Dawn, Robert Temple, The mysteries of ancient Egypt have proved an endless source of fascination to the world. Here, for the first time, international bestselling author Robert Temple seeks to reveal the real history of this ancient civilisation's puzzling origins and in so doing calls into question accepted truths about the early history of Egypt. With unprecedented access to lost portions of the Valley Temple which have long been closed to archaeologists, Temple presents a sensational, reconstructed story of this fascinating society. By exploring the many paths to the truth in the story of ancient Egypt, "Egyptian Dawn" establishes: that the Great Pyramid could not have been built by King Cheops. The exact locations of seven intact royal tombs of the Old Kingdom period which currently await opening at Giza, and the true purpose and plan of the Giza Plateau and its three main pyramids. The existence of the world's largest megalithic ring and astronomical observatory in North Africa and its possible connection with the pyramids. That the Valley Temple of Giza is riddled with previously unreported passages and chambers, which Robert Temple presents here for the first time. The true date of the mysterious 'Tomb of Osiris', which lies 114 feet beneath the Giza Plateau. By re-dating key monuments using a revolutionary new technique, together with stunning never-before-seen images which have been meticulously photographed and documented, Temple provides solid evidence to support his findings whilst exposing the antiquities forgers who faked much of the data for Old Kingdom chronology. "Egyptian Dawn" is unlike any other book before it, and is supported by many supplementary photos on its website. Bookseller Inventory # B9780099414681
