Standing more than 40 stories high, the Great Pyramid of Giza has towered over the hot, dry Egyptian desert for more than 2,500 years. In this book, one of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World is explored. How was this massive structure created in a time before cranes and other heavy machinery? How did the thousands of pyramid builders live and work? And how are modern-day robots being used to explore tiny passages and mysterious shafts deep within this giant tomb?

School Library Journal Review for Egypt's Ancient Secrets

The “secrets” of ancient Egypt are revealed through visits to archaeological excavations and analysis of what they reveal about Egyptian civilization. Spreads have several paragraphs of text, with sufficient background and detail. . . .Illustrations are an eye-catching mix of well-captioned drawings of processes like mummification and pyramid construction alongside contemporary photos of artifacts and locations. The market has a surfeit of sets on ancient Egypt, but this one offers valuable perspective on how ongoing archaeology and scholarship continue to expand current knowledge. VERDICT: Ghost Ship, Tomb Robbers, and Golden Mummies will be new for most readers and are primary purchases. Great Pyramid, King Tut, and Sphinx are good additional purchases.
