Synopsis

Solving the Mysteries of the Pyramids by Fiona MacDonald

The Ancient Egyptian pyramids along the river Nile are one of the wonders of the world. These world famous sites are places where ancient history can still be explored today. These monuments have puzzled and fascinated archaeologists and historians for hundreds of years. Solving the Mysteries of the Pyramids explores these amazing ruins and looks in detail at other famous sites, such as the Great Sphinx and at the culture of mummifying the dead; burying them with food, animals, gold, weapons and other offerings for the gods. The book fills in the details of how we think the people who lived there at the time built and used these amazing tombs. It also explains how some of the archaeological discoveries were uncovered, which have helped to piece together our understanding of this fascinating time.
