1.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative sensationalism, 1 April 2003
Although perhaps well intentioned, this appears to me to be the most unscientific and incredible thesis I have read in a long while. By selecting spurious collections of 'evidence' the authors have woven a web of beguiling but non-sensical. Military intelligence is not my forte, neither (I am thankful to say) is extra-terrestrial contact. However, the things written about ancient Egypt in this book are redeemed only through their comedy value. I suggest that anybody with any interest in the pyramids ought to visit them, or take the time at least to read one of the many excavation reports or similar texts about them. These contain valuable insights into how and why the pyramids were built. There are many mysteries surrounding ancient Egypt, and much about our ancestors which we do not know yet, the construction of the pyramids is not one of them. Recent research and translation of hyroglyphic texts has told shown us the reasons why they were built (to transport the soul of the pharoah into the heavens). Cobbling together a few sensational 'facts' to sell books to the gullible, adds nothing to learning about our past or ourselves.

4.0 out of 5 stars Prehistoric Henges, 27 Mar. 2003
This is a good book to have if you want an overview of this prehistoric phenomena. Little is mentioned of the social context or the human scale of the people who built them. However, this remains a useful compilation and a handy reference text for students and interested parties alike.
