A very easy-to-read overview of Egyptology and why a lot of it is probably inaccurate, based as it is on the mistranslation of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics by the Greeks who were seen as barbarians by the Egyptians. What we currently think we know about ancient Egypt, therefore, comes from what the Greeks thought they knew - which apparently was not very much, as the ancient Egyptian wisdom-keepers did not pass their inner secrets on to the Greeks and nor did they tell them all of the meanings of their largely symbolic written language. This knowledge did not die with the ancient Egyptian civilisation, however, but lives on today in the form of local initiates to the teachings of the ancients.

The Land Of Osiris introduces the oral tradition of ancient Khem or Khemit which has been handed down for millennia and is now recounted by the author from the teachings of local wisdom keeper Abd'El Hakim Awyan, a local tour guide known to many who lived a few hundreds yards from the Giza plateau. This tradition confirms the belief that the true history of ancient Egypt, or Khem, is very different from, and far far older than, the currently accepted version and is corroborated by, among many others, the works of Christopher Dunn who documents unmistakeable evidence in far-off ancient times of advanced machining techniques we are only just starting to use today (such as ultra-sonic drilling), and by John Anthony West and Robert Schoch who have demonstrated that the Sphinx is far older than is currently accepted due to the irrefutable presence of massive water erosion around the structure and its enclosure, the type of erosion generally accepted by geologists as being the result of thousands of years of rain.

Much time and research has been spent on the reevaluation of ancient Egyptian history and in this is book no less so.For aswell as increasing the evidance for advanced planning and technology in ancient Egypt,The author with the aid of an indignous wisdom keeper explores many right brain expereances and concepts.Along with a valued new terminology and many new and thourght provoking facts this book will earn its place among
the others that are fruits of minds unshackeled by orthodoxy.

I absolutely devoured this book. For the -I think- first time ever, I have read a book about Egypt that I could get along with. The author, along with his companion in many parts of the book, stick to the facts discovered and not so many theories that do not make sense. The author has managed to stay away from the usual 'my theory is this,' way of writing. He does speculate at times, but makes a point of saying that they need more research and evidence before they could write more on the subject. Great book, great read, thoroughly recommend it, but do read it with an open mind. If you are into mainstream Egyptology, you may be surprised.

I can honestly say that I have never read such an interesting and informative book. The history of the region lays bare the popular misconception of ancient Egypt . Every concept currently fashionable is given the lie, from the patriarchal/matriarchal mistake, to the interaction between the Egyptians and the Greeks on the one hand; to the construction and purpose of the pyramides on the other. A riveting read raising more questions than answering queries

After comparing this to others in the field, I selected this as probably the best of the crop. It had great potential and was intriguing in places, but it didn't strike me as authoritative and stumbled over trumpeting minutae, a common problem with this form of writing, I have found. All of this being a strictly personal judgement, of course - I look for books like this to convince me. This one didn't.

In the book the author Stephen Mehler proposes an alternate Egyptian tradition which has been keep to a few initiates since many thousands of years before present. This tradition introduces an alternate route for the present river Nile or rather an entirely different different river on whose banks the present day oasis are located. He also christians the role of the well known pyramids in view of this alternate tradition.

The book is a very good read for people looking for alternations and thus forms a basis for further serious investigations. I am sure Stephen would follow this up soon with another book with more concrete evidence to support his theory.

I was full of expectation,new author (to me) with a different slant on a neglected subject. OH DEAR!! This guy is away with the fairies and the book has a tiny bit of realistic foundation, the vast bulk of his ramblings are pure claptrap more akin to mediums and these folk that can contact your dead relatives. Try to pin down any of his theories if you can, you will have more success going to an African witch doctor to have your terminal cancer cured. I read the book all the way through in the hope it would get better. I finally put it in the waste bin where it belongs.
