Revue de presse

"Fascinating...this book is imbued with the sense of wonder that is essential for good science, plus the intrigue of a good thriller" (Popular Science)

"Bauval covers the whole of Egypt's ancient civilization in a manner never before attempted" (Watkins Review) --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Présentation de l'éditeur

The Orion Mystery published in 1994 introduced the world to a highly original, and now internationally famous, star-correlation theory about the Giza Pyramids in Egypt. It sent a huge shock-wave of controversy throughout the scientific community, the effects of which are still felt today. The Egypt Code develops this pyramid-stars correlation, challenging the long held assumption held by many Egyptologists that the pyramids were tombs principally meant to house the bodies of dead kings. In addition to this theory, Robert Bauval also reveals an amazing 'Grand Unified Plan' which involves the wonderful temple of Upper Egypt.

The Egypt Code is unlike any other book before it and covers the whole of Egypt's ancient civilisation in a manner never before attempted. Much has been written as to 'how' the Egyptians might have aligned their monuments with such high precision, but the question that has always remained unanswered is 'why?'- why did the ancients put so much emphasis on astronomical alignments? And what could be the function, practical or symbolic, behind these mysterious alignments?

Deciphering the "Code" 14 septembre 2008
Par LMG - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book is an excellent follow-up to the author's previous THE ORION MYSTERY. I believe that he does have something here that deserves attention. Egyptologists have never been in agreement over the reason for the placement of the pyramids, their relative sizes at Giza, their orientation, etc. Bauval has provided a "unified [pyramid] field theory" to account for all of the above without forcing the issue. Even the Zoser statue, the Sphinx, and other works of "funerary" sculpture are given new meaning vis-a-vis their positioning. A must for anyone interested in this area of Antiquity. Prof. Lewis M. Greenberg

A fascinating read that is as thoughtful as it is thought provoking 13 décembre 2008
Par Midwest Book Review - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
The mysteries of the tombs, pyramids, and beliefs of the Egyptians continues to spark iconoclastic theories. "The Egypt Code: A Grand Plan" is a provocatively informative book wherein author Robert Bauval presents his "grand unified theory" which shows how from earliest times beginner around 3000 BC to the closure of the Egyptian civilization with the death of Cleopatra and the dominant control of Rome in 30 BC, the pharaohs correlated what they saw in the sky to what they built on the ground. Fascinating perspectives and thoughts lending to this theory that not only did Egyptians mirror on the ground what they saw in the sky, but that the changes in the sky landscape, matches the changes on the ground, for example the size and placement of a pyramid. "The Egypt Code: A Grand Plan" presents an articulate and thought provoking set of ideas and explanations, which will bring about great discussions for some time to come. Recommended for public and Egyptology and Metaphysical Studies collections, "The Egypt Code: A Grand Plan" is a fascinating read that is as thoughtful as it is thought provoking.

Complete theory for Egypt Monuments 6 juin 2009
Par Mohamed Taha - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I have been following Bauvals books for the last 10 years, there was always something missing and not complete. This books is the complete theory for the Egyptian monuments. I like the theory and everyone should read about it to understand how great the ancient Egyptians were.

Worth reading explanation of Egyptian buildings 6 septembre 2009
Par R. Murray - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book is worth reading I recommend it. This book provides a well-researched explanation of many of the Egyptian building customs. The author solidifies his case for the alignment of structures using the stars as a pattern. There is still that nagging feeling that not all of the many clues in ancient Egypt have been taken into account. The book builds its case upon star alignment and written text. The book does not take into account conflicting evidence that some of the Egyptian buildings may have been built earlier. Nor does the book attempt to explain how the massive projects could have been built by ancient peoples without a technology that modern builders would have difficulty employing but just accepts that they were built.

Very Disappointing 24 août 2010
Par Michael Gilbert - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
just a regurgitation of what he has written before - looks to be just a pure money grab: a new title for an old book (the Orion Mystery, which is excellent)
