Secret of the Great Pyramid

The Great Pyramid of Giza is one of the unsolved mysteries of all time. Egyptologists simply do not know how ancient builders raised thousands of two-ton blocks to the top of the 480-foot pyramid. This lecture presents a radical new theory and the recently discovered evidence for it. For years, French architect, Jean-Pierre Houdin, worked in isolation in a one-room flat in Paris with nothing but his computer and the most detailed blueprints of the pyramid ever drawn. In 2003, he contacted Egyptologist Bob Brier and the two began working together to find evidence for his theory - that hidden inside the pyramid is a mile-long ramp that is still there, waiting to be discovered. In the course of their explorations in Egypt, they uncovered a room 275 feet up the pyramid never mentioned in the Egyptological literature. Recently, Houdin, working with Dassault Systemem in Paris, was also able to demonstrate that the Great Pyramid cracked as it was being built, and pinpoint precisely when and why. This illustrated lecture presents the new internal ramp theory and the evidence for it, including the first photographs of the room high up on the Pyramid's northeast corner. This research was the subject of a recent National Geographic Channel TV special and Dr. Brier will be signing copies of his new book, Secret of the Great Pyramid, published by Smithsonian Press, 2008.
