The construction of the pyramids in Egypt has spawned much heated debate, with theories spanning from esoteric fantasies involving extraterrestrial involvement to more rational approaches. In 1996 I have undertaken some research into the logistical aspects of constructing the Great Pyramids at Giza and published my findings on the internet. After completing this theoretical study I visited Egypt to have a close look at the pyramids.
The pyramids were built by ancient Egyptians, not by aliens and without the use of technology that even we don’t have access to. These pages are a homage to the ingenuity and hard work of the thousands of Egyptians that worked all their lives to create a monument for their Pharao.
Essays on Pyramid Construction

- Site Visit Report: Report on my visit to the pyramids in 1997.
- The Re-Construction of the Great Pyramid at Giza: Review of the Desk Study by Dori Freeman.
These studies do not claim to be a final word on this subject. They do, however, demonstrate that building a structure like the Great Pyramid is well within the technological ability of Old Kingdom Egyptian society.
