Just what is behind the building of thee pyramids: space ships, ley lines and all the other stories - are they fact or fiction? The Old Kingdom pharaohs believed that death was the beginning of eternal life. They believed that they would rise from their tombs to shimmer in the deep blue night as an un-setting star. To help them on their way they built pyramids - huge ramps or stairways charged with potent magic, leading directly to the sky. To understand the skills and beliefs of the earliest pyramid builders we must look backwards and trace the pyramid building society back to its roots. Then, we should be able to see not only how and why the Egyptians were able to build their pyramids, but how the pyramids helped to build Egypt.
