The most colossal engineering project of ancient times, the Great Pyramid of Giza has perplexed researchers for millennia with its seamless design and its intricate interior passages. Recounting the history of the structure and providing an overview of its era, engineer Craig Smith re-examines this enigmatic tomb for Pharaoh Khufu, presenting new theories on how the Egyptians planned the project, prepared the site, organized their workers, and moved the massive stones over considerable distances. Along with 16 pages of color plates, this "impressive, accessible analysis" (Booklist) includes more than 60 black and white photos, drawings, and graphs; glossaries of terms and Egyptian deities; and a chart calculating the number of blocks used to build the pyramid
