9780517884546: The Orion Mystery: Unlocking the Secrets of the Pyramids

A revolutionary book that explains the most enigmatic and fascinating wonder of the ancient world: the Pyramids of Egypt.

In 1993, German robotics engineer Rudolf Gatenbrink discovered a sealed door within the Great Pyramid of Giza--a door left unopened for 4,500 years. With this discovery, Robert Bauval--who spent the decade prior to the discovery researching the pyramids--and Adrian Gilbert used astronomical data to reveal that more than just tombs, the pyramids were created to serve as a gateway to the stars; in the process, they uncovered what they believe to be the key to the plan that governed the construction of the great pyramids: the Orion Constellation.

"[An] absorbing and fascinating work of archaeological detection...clearly and rivetingly told...the book is highly and compulsively readable."--London Sunday Times.

Book Description Random House USA Inc, United States, 1995. Paperback. Book Condition: New. American.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Already a number one best-seller in Britain, The Orion Mystery is the story of a secret, hidden for thousands of years, that will forever change our understanding of the meaning and purpose of the most fascinating wonder of the ancient world: the Pyramids of Egypt. What purpose did these massive structures, one of the largest construction projects ever undertaken, serve? Why were they scattered across the desert in a seemingly random pattern? The pyramid mystery deepened when, in 1993, researcher Rudolf Gantenbrink discovered a secret door within the Great Pyramid - a door unopened for 4,500 years. Robert Bauval has spent the last ten years investigating the pyramids themselves and the Pyramid Texts, the oldest writings known to mankind. He and Adrian Gilbert have uncovered, for the first time, the key to the plan that governed the construction of the pyramids. They reveal that, much more than just tombs, the pyramids were nothing less than a replica of Heaven on Earth. With great astronomical precision, they were created to serve as the Pharaohs gateway to the stars. Dramatic and compelling, The Orion Mystery leads us step-by-step through these remarkable discoveries. It will be hailed as a historic achievement by all who are intrigued by the world s ancient mysteries. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780517884546
