review ¾ Mountains of the Pharaohs The Untold Story of the Pyramid Builders An unprecedented account of one of civilization's greatest achievements The great pyramids of Giza have intrigued humanity for thousands of years uestions about the construction and the purpose of these majestic monuments have existed since the middle period of ancient Egyptian civilization; in the sixth century BC Herodotus was the first of generations of explorers to travel to Egypt in an attempt to unlock their secrets Recent cutting edge research has uncovered information about how and why they were built unimaginable to prev If you like Egyptology you will love this book If you don t know what Egyptology means you probably won t love this book If you are like me and you really want to like Egyptology but whenever you read anything about Egypt you feel as though your brain is being extracted through your naval cavity who knows what you ll think of this bookMountains of the Pharaohs is interesting in that it endeavors to tell the whole story of how the Great Pyramids were built It does this with minute detail which is sure to fascinate the scholar but tends to leave the guys who don t like to get sand in their shoes like me a little lost Hawass does throw a bone to guys like me by filling in the gaps of his historic puzzle with little anecdotes about what people in Ancient Egypt might have said or done in a certain situation But not even this occasional narrative departure enticed me because I was trapped in believing that h

review ¾ Mountains of the Pharaohs The Untold Story of the Pyramid Builders Igures to life spinning a soap opera like saga complete with murder incest and the triumphant ascension to the throne of one of only four ueens ever to rule Egypt The magnificent pyramids attest not only to the dynasty's supreme power but also to the engineering expertise and architectural sophistication that flourished under their rule Hawass argues that the pyramids including the Great Pyramid of Khufu the only one of the Seven Wonders of the World still standing were built by skilled craftsman who took great pride in their wor While I really dislike Hawass when he struts across the screen during the many documentaries on ancient Egypt I like him as an authorThere is so much at the Pyramids at Giza in Egypt than just the pyramids themselves As and research is coming to light is becoming known about not only the pyramids themselves but also about the Pharaohs who ordered them built but importantly about the people who worked on building themI ve come to the conclusion that unless a book about ancient Egypt is a renowned classic it is best not to read any book if it is than 6 8 years old New information is coming to light all the time and a book written even 10 years ago can have what we now know are errors This book is a good one to read for now but in a few years even information will be known rendering this one out of date too
