Abstract:

"Pyramid Quest uses the rigorous analysis of scientific inquiry to investigate what we know about the Great Pyramid - and develops a stunning hypothesis: This ancient monument is the strongest proof yet that civilization began thousands of years earlier than generally thought, extending far back into a little-known, almost forgotten time. In tracing that story, we come to better understand not only the Great Pyramid itself but also our own origins as civilized beings."--Jacket.
