Description

What secrets does the Giza Plateau really hold? Who is trying to unlock them, and what are their motives? Giza: The Truth is the definitive work on the real story behind the Giza Plateau: it's history, it's purpose, the politics and motives that drive the key players - both alternative and orthodox - in their quest to unlock the secrets of the world's most enigmatic monuments. Ian Lawton and Chris Ogilvie-Herald's wealth of research has led them behind the scenes to a world of politics, jealousy and ambition. In addition to these revelations, Giza: The Truth is the only book to feature a balanced analysis of the theories as to who built the pyramids, why, how and when. Also uncovered are the real motives and findings of the multitude of explorations conducted at the Plateau in recent years, including those whose aim has been to locate the infamous Hall of Records. No stone has been left unturned in this search for the truth, resulting in what can only be described as the most fascinating and important piece of work on the Giza Plateau to date.show more

Review Text

"Lawton and Ogilvie-Herald's insight into the great Giza debate is superb..... I urge everyone to read and digest Giza: The Truth before they even think about picking up another book on alternative Egypt."show more
