Vyse H.: Pyramids of Gizeh, Vol. I, pp. 275-6 describes Hill's find of an iron object. Wainwright G.: 'The Coming of Iron', in Antiquity X (1936), pp. 5-24. Wertime T. and Muhly: The Coming of the ... of iron objects in two pyramids. The footnote by Maspero is in an item by S. Reinach reviewing debate on the appropriateness for Egypt of the Stone/Bronze/Iron Age categorisation. The iron objects were found in the pyramid of Unas and in 'la grande pyramide en briques de Dahshour'. Reinach mentions Maspero's discovery as being in 1882. Maspero excavated Unas's pyramid in 1881 (I. Edwards: The Pyramids of Egypt, 1985, p. 172) and in 1882 he excavated pyramids at Meidum and el-Lisht (Edwards ...

... and examined, which were erected on both sides of the river by Egyptian and Ethiopian kings, furnish incontrovertible proof that the long series of temples, cities, sepulchres and monuments in general, exhibit a distinct chronological order, of which the starting-point is found in the pyramids, at the apes of the Delta." It must be emphatically stated that the results obtained from these monuments, studying them from the astronomical point of view, lead to a very different conclusion. Instead of one series, there are distinctly two (leaving ... Temple L N. 136 E. 38 S. of E. S. 35 Pyramids 9, 13 N. 136 E. 37 S. of E. S. 35 Pyramid 11 N. 140 E. 41 S. of E.

... . The Mycenaeans used to smooth the underside of their 'false vaults' (i.e. corbelled roofs, vaults without deflection of pressure by wedge-shaped stones). The Etruscans left them stepped. The same vaults can be found in buildings of only two Egyptian pharaohs: the Pyramids of Sneferu and Cheops. Megalithic boulders and large quantities of granite were used in the pyramid of Cheops.

4. Forum [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Newsletter 2 (Sep 1975) Home¦ Issue Contents Forum A SLOW START, perhaps, but then if we start small, we can only get bigger... This is your column: your letters are invited. Joseph and the Pyramids MY MAIN INTEREST in Velikovsky is as a student of Scripture and on this score I would like to put forward one or two thoughts concerning the record in Genesis which seem to me to affect both the revised chronology and the idea of catastrophes. A considerable part of Genesis is given to the recording of the story of Joseph. The basic facts are these: 1. Pharaoh had a dream which was interpreted for him by Joseph as being a fore-warning of a coming famine. Before the famine there were to be seven years of plenty, and then these would die away and the food crops would fail. 2. Joseph was appointed the controller of Egyeven good years and then seven years of famine? Secondly, the building material of those days was stone, and any storehouses that Joseph built ...
5. The Pyramids [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... The Pyramids During the Old Kingdom in Egypt, under the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Dynasties, huge pyramids were erected at Giza, at Sakkara, and in other places of the land. That of King Khufu (Cheops of the Greek authors) is the largest, of the best workmanship, and the most famous. Alongside it is the second largest pyramid, built by the son of Khufu, Khafra (Chephren), and a smaller one built by Menkaure (Mycerinus), also a descendant of Khufu. The later pyramids are of poorer workmanship and smaller than those of Khufu and Khafra. The Great Pyramid originally rose to a height of over 481 feet and measured ca. 756 feet at the base; it totalled 3,277,000 cubic yards of stone, or an estimated 2,300,000 blocks, which is ? the largest constructed mass of stone ever erected by man.?

6. Those Ancient Greek Pyramids [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 116: Mar-Apr 1998 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Those Ancient Greek Pyramids That's right. Greek pyramids! On Greek soil, at Hellenikon and Ligourio west of Athens in the Argolid region, are two limestone pyramids that are stylistically very much like those at Giza near Cairo. The big difference is size; the Greek pyramids are only the size of a large room compared to the Great Pyramid's height (with capstone) of almost 500 feet. When excavations were made around the Greek pyramids in the early 1900s, pottery fragments from the Fourth Century B.C. were found, and it was presumed that the pyramids were also constructed then; that is, about the time of Alexander the Great. Recent dating of crystals from internal surfaces of the limestone blocks using thermoluminescence puts the construction times back two millennia. The Hellenikon pyramid dates to 2730 B.C.; the Ligourio, to 2260 B.C. This means that the Greek pyramids were built in roughly the same time frame as ...
7. Egyptian pyramids actually made of synthetic stone? [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 54: Nov-Dec 1987 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Egyptian pyramids actually made of synthetic stone? The assertion of the title above has been around for a while, but now it has been detailed in a paper before the American Chrmical Society. "An authority on ancient building materials reported evidence Friday that the Egyptian pyramids were built of a remarkable synthetic stone that was cast on the site like concrete. "The new theory challenges the widely accepted belief that the pyramids were built from natural stone obtained from quarries and laboriously moved to the site on wooden rollers. "Dr. Joseph Davidovits said that the synthetic pyramid stone was made with cement far stronger than modern portland cement, which binds together the rock and sand in concrete. Portland cement has an average span of about 150 years, he said, but cements like those used in the pyramids last thousands of years..... "Davidovits said that a new deciphering of an ancient hieroglyphic text now provides ...
8. Towards an astronomical dating of the pyramids [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 1996:2 (May 1997) Home¦ Issue Contents Towards an astronomical dating of the pyramids by Michael G. Reade Michael G. Reade DSC has contributed several 'astronomical' articles to SIS publications. His astronomical expertise derives from wartime experience as a Navigating Officer in the Royal Navy (1940-44). Since then, his principal activities have been in food technology and woodland management. Summary A detailed study of the claim that the pyramids of Giza were planned to mirror the constellation of Orion on the ground supports this hypothesis but reveals that the ancient Egyptians cannot have been quite such precise surveyors as is frequently claimed and that the era when the plan was conceived was probably around 800 BC. The book The Orion Mystery by R. Bauval and A. Gilbert, first published 1994 [1, presents a very plausible hypothesis as to how the pyramids of Giza and their environs were conceived by the ancient Egyptians as a scale plan of the constellation of Orion (equated, in Egyptian eyes, with Osiris), from ...

10. In Defence of the Gods [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... was a period in which man possessed what he describes as the 'bicameral mind' in which the left hemisphere of the brain received instructions from the right hemisphere of the brain which is the intuitive, synthesising, organising side. These instructions were perceived by the bicameral man as voices of the gods. In 1983 a McMaster-Bauer Symposium [2 on consciousness took place in which it was decided that the lecture should be given by Julian Jaynes. During the open discussion period the following question was asked from the 'floor': 'How about the pyramids of Egypt? Surely the pharaohs who built them as their tombs were thinking ahead to their afterlife, and that would be consciousness.' Jaynes replied as follows: "This is what is called the "presentist" fallacy. You are phrasing the situation as if ancient Egyptians were like ourselves. They were not. The pharaohs of 2500 B.C. did not built the pyramids for themselves. You must remember that the volition of a bicameral person was his auditory hallucination or god, and so the volition of each pharaoh was ...
