Great Pyramid, The: Gateway to the Stars

Synopsis
Writers Robert Bauval and Adrian Gilbert claim that the Great Pyramid was an instrument of worship in the stellar cult of the fourth Egyptian dynasty, and that the precision with which it was constructed was an attempt to re-create heaven on earth. Emma Freud meets Bauval and Gilbert, and talks to Egyptoloists.
