4.0 out of 5 stars The first day went on and on and on..., 12 July 2006

This review is from: Pyramid of Secrets: The Architecture of the Great Pyramid Reconsidered in the Light of Creational Mythology (Paperback)
I went to a presentation that Alan Alford gave outlining the main themes of this book. On the basis of his presentation I bought the book because Alan appeared to have a well reasoned argument for his alternative theory. The author has carried out a desk top survey of literature available in the public domain and supplemented it with site visits and discussions with other researchers. Although secret chambers may appeal to most people interested in the pyramids the book offers more. The book contains some original ideas that the reader must contemplate against the background of traditional views. Alan puts forward an alternative theory for the construction of the Great Pyramid based on the concept that the first day of creation is perpetuated everyday. Alan suggests the pyramid is built on an ancient `primeval' mound and indeed that is what the pyramid represents, thereby celebrating that dawn of the gods. In the authors opinion Khufu was buried in the lower depths of the structure, probably in the little discussed `Grotto'. Alan suggests the Kings and Queens Chamber were used to amplify the sound of the earth, probably in the range of 16 to 30 Hz and new pyramid guardians were initiated here. The writer gives a reasoned argument for secret chambers in the pyramid discussing those already discovered. Alan makes a case for tell tale signs indicating where other yet undiscovered secret chambers are and shares his predictions with the reader. Alan has a website that includes a summary of his ideas:

[...]

The book is privately printed, comprises approximately 440 pages with eleven chapters and about 140 black and white photographs and illustrations. Each chapter has a summary of the theme and key bullet points. For those readers who like to have a summary before taking in the main body of the chapter this is handy. The chapters are: The pyramid decoded, a tour of the pyramid, nothings but a tomb?, the body to earth, the iron of creation, capsule of eternity, echoes of creation, the pyramid plundered, the sacred book, secret chambers and new horizons. To supplement the bibliography a detailed notes section provides information for any researcher wanting to follow any of the references. For those hungry for news of hidden places in the pyramid there are a lot of words to digest before chapter ten. I could imagine some readers may become frustrated with the book and wish the author would cut to the chase and go straight to `Secret Chambers'.

I must admit, Alan gives a good argument for secret chambers. Like similar alternative theorists he nails his colours to the mast and bares all. Alan states clearly where secret chambers should be located based on objective observations and it should be possible to prove or disprove his ideas. As time progresses and we explore and discover more about the Pyramids Alan's predictions will either stand up or fall.

If this book is going to be your first adventure into the world of alternative pyramid ideas you would probably find it heavy going and struggle with the terminology. Alan is not sensationalistic with his ideas and has presented his message while trying to keep his feet firmly in the sand. The book comes across as a scholarly work and the reader should be prepared for all the spade work leading up to each set of conclusions. I would recommend this book to anyone who has some experience of accepted traditional theories surrounding the pyramids and associated belief systems. You may then make an informed judgment comparing accepted and this alternative theory. You have to decide if the author has made a strong enough case to convince you that the first day of creation was relived again and again and again...

5.0 out of 5 stars Creationism is the answer, 1 Dec 2003
This review is from: Pyramid of Secrets: The Architecture of the Great Pyramid Reconsidered in the Light of Creational Mythology (Paperback)
This work by Alan Alford is brilliant
Not only is his research superb, but his insights are unsurpassable.
Modern Archaeologists think that the Great Pyramid is a tomb and nothing but a tomb,others think that it is dedicated to the Sun
but Mr Alford has stolen first prize, his work clearly shows a complex and sophisticated culture based on Creation.
If you really want an insight and you genuinly seek truth.
Then this book is a must for your shelves.
Crichton E M Miller.

5.0 out of 5 stars A well researched book, 4 July 2005
By

This review is from: Pyramid of Secrets: The Architecture of the Great Pyramid Reconsidered in the Light of Creational Mythology (Paperback)
This is one of the most well researched books, dedicated to the Great Pyramid of Giza, that I have ever read. Alan Alford uses real evidence/ findings and common sense [the one thing that many alternative thinkers do not have] to find the true purpose of the Great Pyramid. There is no water pump or alien landing strip here, just reality and a well educated mind putting it all together. Alford also starts to reinterpret the ancient Egyptian texts, bringing forth the idea that maybe it was a cult of Creation and not just a group of sun worshippers. The only drawback was the fact that I had to wait for the second part of this book to come out. This is a must read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very thorough researcher, 16 Mar 2013
This review is from: Pyramid of Secrets: The Architecture of the Great Pyramid Reconsidered in the Light of Creational Mythology (Paperback)
While not everyone will agree with all of Alford's assumptions and conclusions, his research is impeccable, his descriptions accurate, and his speculations logical and intelligent. He managed to arrange a thorough access through the Great Pyramid to collect firsthand information to write this book. No matter what hypothesis you are working on or subscribe to, Alford's book will add useful, relevant information which you will need to consider! Alan is one of the better thinkers among today's armchair archeologists and he deserves a place of honor in the annals of Great Pyramid investigations.

It is extremely unfortunate that Alan recently has met a sudden and mysterious death at such an early age. He could have contributed so much more to the truth about ancient mankind. Get this book while it's still available, read it thoroughly, and keep it for all time.
