It leaves me with the sense that various so-called 'experts' have a hidden agenda, for reasons best known to themselves; I include in this the Head of Antiquities (or whatever) Zahi Howass, who, when I have seen him in various documentaries about Egyptology, strikes me as being full of himself, bombastic, irascible and not very well educated at that!
I do seriously wonder if something has been found and there is a conspiracy to hide it from the rest of the world - it is a feasible idea and would not surprise me in the slightest.
One of the greatest lies I believe is that the Ancient Pyramid building Egyptian civilisation just ' sprang up from nowhere' with all the very advanced knowledge of astronomy, how to move 200 ton blocks of stone ( which can only be done NOW, with the one crane in existence capable, and then only after months of preparation), etc., etc., and yet we are told by the 'experts' that the Great Pyramid only took 10 years to build! What, with vine ropes and sand ramps? I do not think so. Simple logistics rule all this so-called fact, out.
Even I can see that that The Great Sphinx has been weathered by water - well, enough said, I think.
They must all think that we are all as stupid as they are.
For anyone interested in the complex, I highly recommend you take the time to read this book.
The book starts off by introducing facts and anomalies about the Great Sphinx and Pyramids at Giza and some of the unsolved mysteries around them - again fuelling the reader interest to carry on reading. Many instances of uncompleted research are presented to the reader that appear to go against mainstream Egyptology - this is heightened by the constant accusation that these research projects were stopped early by Egyptian authorities trying to cover something up or suppress the truth.
Before long there are many questions waiting to be answered and evidence regarding the astronomy are given. Some of the evidence is compelling and the theories put forward regarding the links between the old Egyptian texts and astronomy are fascinating to say the least.
However, it sooon becomes clear that the evidence is at times manipulated to suit the authors - not in itself a bad point as many authors do - and to prove the untested theory. There is also a lot of conjecture that is not backed up by facts. By the end of the book you will find that the authors are going round in circles and even giving conflicting views to those put forward at the start of the book.
Upon finishing this book I did not feel enlightened. Most of the questions raised in the blurb were not answered, nor were some of the others raised in the text. I would agree that this is an interesting book, but it is flawed in many places. Those with an interest in such matters may find the book worthwhile, but those from an academic background or wanting to do serious research about the topic are best advised to go elsewhere.
