Beautifully illustrated and lavishly produced this book represents a major new study of the great pyramid. Scholarly, yet in a style accessible to the layman, Romer offers new insights into the design and construction of the pyramid, arguing that contrary to received wisdom, the monument was built to one central plan. He also places the design and construction process firmly in its time, throwing light on Egyptian society in the age of King Khufu. "Perhaps the greatest praise is that I would have been extremely pleased to have written it myself!" - Ian Shaw.
