Book Description

20 April 1998

Peter Lemesurier’s Great Pyramid Decoded has now become a world-wide classic. In his new book he develops his ideas beyond his original thoughts and the ideas of Bauval and Hancock in The Orion Mysteries and Fingerprints of the Gods and takes the theories to their logical conclusion. He explores both the internal design of the pyramids and their position in relationship to the star system.

These ideas have astounding implications for our understanding of our origins.

Product Description

From the Back Cover


The Pyramids of Giza have always been regarded as one of the great wonders of the world. What if they were built not by the Ancient Egyptians, nor even by the legendary Atlanteans, but by a still more ancient race or civilisation from outside our solar system that had a stake in the future destiny of the human race?

In 'Gods of the Dawn' Peter Lemesurier argues convincingly that the Egyptian Pyramids are in fact part of an ancient star map – a message in stone from a vastly superior intelligence, designed to guide us through the present, steer us towards the future and finally summon us to the stars.

This view will revolutionise our view of humanity’s place in the cosmos.

By combining the cutting edge theories of well-known Egypt experts with his own years of intensive research, Peter Lemesurier has put together an explosive new work that at last presents a unified theory of the pyramids.

In language that is simple, dramatic and to the point he explains the extraordinary mathematics, geography and astronomy behind them and their internal passages and chambers. He uses clearly set out diagrams to demonstrate that the pyramids are a cosmic ‘address’ representing Earth, Mars, Venus and the moon – and that the spine-tingling message they enshrine probably came from outside the solar system.

There have been other books about the pyramids, and this is not the first time that they have been associated with extraterrestrial beings. It is, however, the first time that an outer space connection with the pyramids has been suggested by a writer who is widely respected as a serious commentator on the subject.

From reviews for 'The Great Pyramid Decoded:'
‘An extraordinary book, quite inordinately extraordinary.’

‘I find it a very remarkable book. At the end of reading it, I felt that either I should throw it out of the window, or that I should throw every other book in my room out of the window and keep just it.’
ANTHONY SMITH, 'BBC Kaleidoscope'

Prior to reading this book, my knowledge of the great pyramids and the surrounding area of Giza was very limited but a curiosity in the subject has always been present. So I picked up this book and began to read. Immeadiatly I was amazed. The mathematical and astronomical accuracy of the Pyramids cannot be denied and reading this information does make the reader question many of the 'classical' thoughts about their presence. Peter Lemesurier delivers these mathematical and astronomical facts very easily indeed. Although it may seem like it is going to be heavy going, with the use of good diagrams and straight-forward language he makes it very easy for the reader to understand, and feel, the impact of the Pyramids. However, the book also includes the authors thoughts on 'who'. I do understand that this is just Peters opinion but I felt that towards the end of the book it started to read more like a science fiction novel. I don't just mean the content in this, but the way the actual story is portrayed to the reader. The author does supply the reader with the reasoning behind his ideas, but this does not stop the 'feel' of the book changing. In summary, if you want to know about the pyramids, and data regarding their architecture and geographical location, then this is a well presented, easy to understand book. However, once the factual element is over be prepared for a change and expect more of a sci-fi style. Worth a read just for the Pyramid information.

Like other readers I knew little of the wonders that that Pyramids hold, both in terms of the structural engineering and the lives of those who built them, and the reasons behind their enormous undertakings. Sadly, after reading the book, I still know little about these elements. The book started well, with some interesting quasi-scientific interpretations of the structures and messages encoded by the pyramids architecture and construction. However, towards the end the author seems to have taken an acid tablet, and ventures in to sweeping conclusions about messages from alien life and faster-than-light travel. A shame, as it did promise a lot, and delivered little more than a rather far-out personal view of alien intelligence.

1.0 out of 5 stars DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY 6 Jun 2005
As an avid reader of all types of literature dealing with ancient mysteries and general conspiracies I thought this book would be a useful addition to my library.In fact it was a complete and utter let down,without doubt the worst book I have ever purchased from Amazon.The "Author" pours forth such an unsubtantiated and nonsensical stream of twisted statistics concerning the Pyramids that even the most ardent and enthusistic conspiracy freak is left feeling ashamed and rather foolish.Instead of arousing ones interest in these fascinating structures this book instead will drive you round the bend.

2.0 out of 5 stars gods of the dawn 29 Aug 2011
This book may be a good read for someone who has not read the earlier book from Peter, "The Great Pyramid Decoded". Extensive part of the book, Gods of the Dawn, shares the same thoughts.

5.0 out of 5 stars New idea 12 April 1999
By A Customer
Since we don't know what really happend, I think that all ideas are valid and that new ideas create thought. We do not need evidence that this is true, just the same with god. We have no hard evidence that there is a god. I respect the very few of us that question, think, and formulate our OWN opinions not based on popular beliefs.
