5.0 out of 5 stars great introduction
This is a great introduction for children about how the pyramid of Khufu was built. Despite some racist pseudo-scientific reviews here on Amazon, which claim the Egyptians were not clever enough to build pyramids, there is ample archaeological evidence showing how the Great Pyramid developed out of earlier structures going back to the Protodynastic Period ("Dynasty 0") at...

The Ancient Egyptians were not the builders of the greatest structures ever built on this planet, extraterrestrials had visited this area long before the Egyptians had settled there.

5.0 out of 5 stars great introduction, 5 Sep 2011
This review is from: Who Built the Pyramids? (Usborne Starting Point History) (Paperback)
This is a great introduction for children about how the pyramid of Khufu was built. Despite some racist pseudo-scientific reviews here on Amazon, which claim the Egyptians were not clever enough to build pyramids, there is ample archaeological evidence showing how the Great Pyramid developed out of earlier structures going back to the Protodynastic Period ("Dynasty 0") at Abydos. Great stuff and typical of Usborne publications.

1.0 out of 5 stars Egyptians did not build the Pyramids., 2 Nov 2010
This review is from: Who Built the Pyramids? (Usborne Starting Point History) (Paperback)
Would just like to before you buy this book, please read this.
The Ancient Egyptians were not the builders of the greatest structures ever built on this planet, extraterrestrials had visited this area long before the Egyptians had settled there. Recent evidence has uncovered that the pyramids and the sphinx is far older than originaly thought, they are between 7,500-10,500 years old, there was no human inhabitance at that time.
here are a more facts to strengthen my point-

What about the fact that although the Egyptians kept very careful records about everything they ever did; every king they had, every war they fought, and every structure they built, there were no records of them ever having built the pyramids.

If you take the perimeter of the pyramid and divide it by two times the height, you get a number that is exactly equivalent to the number pi (3.14159...) up to the fifteenth digit. The chances of this phenomenon happening by sheer chance is remarkably small. Did the ancient Egyptians know what the number pi was? Not likely, seeing as it was a number not calculated accurately to the fourth digit until the 6th century, and the pyramids calculate it to the fifteenth.

If you take the line of longitude that the pyramid lies on and the latitude that the pyramid lies on, 31 degrees north by 31 degrees west (the fact that they are the same number is a coincidence???) they are the two lines that cover the most combined land area in the world. In essence, the pyramid is the center of all of the land mass of the whole earth!!!!

Thank you for reading dont belive history its wrong, dont believe the lies.
