The pyramids of Egypt are famous around the world and have captivated visitors and scholars for centuries. These silent, brooding monuments have a great deal to tell us about the world of the ancient Egyptians some four thousand years ago, and the pyramids still inspire architects and builders today. This book tells the story of the pyramids from their earliest beginnings. These monuments developed from the first 'step' pyramid, to the amazing Great Pyramid of Giza. Unlike most books on the subject, this volume describes not only the pyramids themselves but the whole complex of temples and walls that surrounded every one, and the stories of the kings and builders who created them. Joyce Filer follows the story of pyramids through a study of six individual sites, each with something different to tell us about the construction of the pyramid complexes, the architects who designed them, the workers who built them, the kings who were buried in them, and the robbers who plundered them.
