The problem with the time period that this author is referencing (20,000-8,000 BC) is that there is relatively little known about it for such a massive chunk in human history. He tries to make a case for Egypt's cultural history being much older than is currently postulated, based mostly on what he feels is evidence from the sphinx. The points that the author brings up could be easily proved otherwise with more time and research, I think jumping to conclusions about the "true nature" of the pyra ...more

This is, unfortunately, one of the most boring books I have ever read. I bought the book thinking it might have some really interesting things about as far as the origins of Egyptian civilization goes (along the lines of Atlantis, UFOs, etc). The book is not only boring, but the most interesting material is at the end part of the book. The organization of the material in the book leaves a lot to be desired.

The book starts out with some material on the questionable age of the Sphinx. This is the

Good book.... I know for a fact they have lied about the artifacts found in Kemet...Horemakhet is definitely at least 13,000 years old based on water marks left from the ancient Nile floods... It also was made in honor of what we call astrology and the lion represented Leo and the head of a VIRGIN female represented Virgo... Also it had color on it...
Concluding, in addition to Horemakhet, their were many rulers before (Menes-Narmer)... You have a predynastic Kemet culture known as the Badarians.

Very interesting compendium of information on why the relics of Egyptian civilization could be possibly quite older.

I downgraded this book to 3 stars because the author dwells at length on the theory that the great pyramid was a giant power generator and/or resonator. The problems with this theory are too numerous to mention and it takes the book toward Erich von Daniken territory. It's unfortunate because reviewers may look at this wild speculation and then throw out the baby with the bathwate
