Summary
Presents a look at pyramids around the world, including those in Egypt, Sudan, and Central America. The Pyramids at Giza in Egypt have stood for over 4,500 years, and the amazing feat of their construction is shrouded in mystery. This superb collection of specially commissioned photographs tries to answer some of the riddles about them and the people who built them. Discover what archeological finds have revealed about life on the banks of the Nile during the Pyramid Age. See the pyramids and temples of Egypt and Mexico in breathtaking detail, as well as statues of pharaohs, officials, workers, and religious texts written on stone and papyrus thousands of years ago. Reconstructions show the step Pyramid Complex at Saqqara, the interior passages of the Great Pyramid, and a pyramid being built. Pyramid is a unique and fascinating introduction to the mysteries of these striking and colossal structures
