Many of these are my original ideas and are the result of a search for practical and credible solutions to each of the problems presented. This is a book, not only about moving heavy blocks of stone, but a systematic and detailed sequential description of every aspect of pyramid building, which explains how the Ancient Egyptians were able to create all their monuments with the tools and materials available to them. Examples include a consistent method for accurately forming the shape of every Egyptian pyramid without an apex reference - The Virtual Apex Method. A simple method for determining the diagonal lengths and centrepoint positions of large squares without measuring - The Virtual Centrepoint. A materials delivery system which provides external access to all parts of the pyramid at every height and with a volume a fraction of a perpendicular ramp - The Integrated Spiral Ramp and Platforms. There is also an explanation of where the blocks which form the Kings Chamber and Relieving Ceilings in the Great Pyramid should have been placed and why. The supplements describe the consistent geometry of the most well-known pyramids and also suggest how Eiffel might have simplified the construction processes of his tower, had been aware of the Virtual Apex Method and how it was exploited by the Ancient Egyptians. Taken together these ideas and their practical implementation provide a comprehensive and realistic description of Ancient Egyptian Pyramid Building. In fact it was impossible for them to build an accurate solid pyramid of any size in any other way. This is a book for everybody. Whether you are an Egyptologist, Mathematician, Engineer, Architect or simply interested in puzzles, the text and over 100 diagrams, illustrations and photographs will take you step by step through the whole design and construction processes For more than 4500 years, many have searched for answers to how the Ancient Egyptians were able to build their pyramids successfully. You will find the answers here!
