From the publisher's website: Lavishly illustrated, this book combines the latest scientific material with a cultural history to tell the developing story of the inter-relationship between man and dog from its origin in remote antiquity to that which we know today.

book coverThe Secret of the Great Pyramid
How one man's obsession led to the solution of Ancient Egypt's greatest mystery
Bob Brier
ISBN 0061655538

Categories :  Pyramids & Sphinx  
From Booklist:A specialist on Egyptian mummies, Brier relates that he receives many a missive purporting to have solved the mystery of the Great Pyramidís construction. In one dayís e-mail, a plausible idea caught his fancy. Unlike theories that aliens lent Egyptians a helping hand, this message dwelt on the central engineering problem concerning the type of ramp the tombís architect used. Brierís communication came from coauthor Houdin, a French architect who devoted years to studying the problem. Rather than immediately bowl readers over with Houdinís proposal, Brier cleverly entices them by alternating Houdinís quest with the trial-and-error development of pharaonic pyramids. Photos and computer-generated graphics illustrate the authorsí explanation of designs and building processes, in the course of which they describe defects in the theories that the ramp was a mile-long straightaway or an external corkscrew. Houdin adopted an inspiration of his fatherís, that the ramp was indeed a corkscrew, but one that rested inside the pyramid. His search for supporting evidence, culminating in a public presentation of his theory in 2007, fills out a book to fascinate pyramid fans.

From the book cover: A world-wide survey of the eating and drinking habits of early peoples, [this book] covers a broad geographical range, from the early populations of Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, and the Americas to the more familiar Egyptian, Mesopotamian, Greek, and Roman worlds. From meat, insects, vegetables, and fruits to cooking oils and beverages, each source of sustenance is described in terms of who consumed it, how it was prepared, and how it spread from its region of origin.
