The Great Pyramid at Gizeh, the oldest and largest of the pyramids, is a time capsule from another age. Built before Moses even began writing the Old Testament, it was already ancient when the greeks of Alexander's time called it one of the seven wonders of the world. Like the time capsules our civilization has left upon the moon, the pyramid contains scientific information and clues to the knowledge that produced it. The information is contained in the measure ments and proportions of the stone structure with its interior rooms and corridors, and in its orientation on the Earth and to the stars. The silent stones at Gizeh contain many mysteries, as do the stones of Stonehenge, Chartres Cathedral, and the Mayan temples of the Yucatan. Many of their secrets have been uncovered; more are waiting. The Great Pyramid: A Miracle in Stone is a classic which has influenced all subsequent work on the subject. Published almost 100 years ago and long out of print, it is intriguing reading for those who seek clues to the wisdom of pre-historical times.
