One can go through all the chambers, passageways, etc. as well
as make it transparent and move around the internal mass of the
pyramid so as to view the internal chambers from the outside, and
from any angle. Pretty well done, and a great visualization tool.

Egypt - British Museum Site
Ancient Egypt Site
Pyramids - The
Inside Story covers the Pyramids in detail. Included are
interviews with Egyptologists Zahi Hawwas and Mark Lehner who are
closely involved with the excavations in the site.
This amazing site has won a host of awards. It contains
reference information on ancient Egypt, up-to-date information on
Egyptological events and museum sites and exhibits, as well as a
chat-room and a bulletin board. It uses photographs and special
panoramic animations to put across the feel of the major ancient
loads of links, including the Official Webpages of Dr.
SCA (Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities).
An archive of copyright free images of Ancient Egyptian
Antiquities. Very good site with excellent images.
The official web-site of Dr. Zahi Hawass, Egyptian
undersecretary of the State for the Giza Monuments, can be found on
this site at the address below.
This is an Egyptology resources site that was developed with the
help of the prestigious Newton Institute, Cambridge. It claims to
receive around 2 million hits per year, and is full of interesting
news bulletins and useful links regarding Egyptology.
Egypt and Human Evolution
The pages on this site are a real pleasure to read. They discuss
two topics, Pre-Dynastic Egypt and Human Evolution, with great
clarity and balance.
A great site full of resources to aid any study of myths and
legends, including links to online dictionaries, encyclopaedias, and
specific articles organised by geographical region.
The Rostau site, dedicated to the mysteries of the Giza plateau.
There are three articles here at the moment, including one on a
stone circle and mound that existed at the location of Pepi II's
Pyramid Complex prior to its construction.
This is the EgyptWorld web-site, with a neat animated
introduction and interface. It contains a virtual museum focusing on
the Pyramids and Ancient Egyptian art. In addition there is a
selection of multimedia teaching clips, a discussion forum, a guide
to other interesting sites and real-life museums, and even a java
game in which you can test your ability as a Pharoah.
The ancient Egyptians builders were masters in working with
stone. These pages document photographic evidence, historical
research and contemporary debates on stone technology. Topics
include predynastic stonewares, straight saws, circular saws,

of the Chihuahua Pharaohs Fun but educational.
This site is the official internet site for both the Egyptian
government's Tourist Authority and the Ministry of Tourism. Put
together over many months by an industrious US internet company,
this site has thousands of pages on everthing Egyptian. Intended
to promote interest in tourism, which is the single largest
source of national income in Egypt, it abundantly covers every
aspect of what's enjoyable in Egypt and how to travel there. In
particular, it has a huge set of pages with photos and text on
all the major monuments. As an official government site it
presents the traditional academic side of Egyptology, but in
recognition of the vast audience for other points of view, a
'mysteries' section is in the works.
The Great Pyramid of Khufu and the Pyramid of the Sun at
Teotihuacan - A Comparative Geometric Analysis (http://www.nexusjournal.com/Reynolds.html)
A wonderfully interactive new site, which looks in depth at the
astronomical implications of the Great Pyramid, but also claims to
answer in less detail various conundrums of our past, from the Maya
to the riddle of Easter Island. Good fun, even if you don't
necessarily agree with all the conclusions.
Death of Gods in Ancient Egypt
Jane Sellers is primarily an author on ancient Egyptian belief
systems, and her work is central to those interested in the
mythology behind the unique dynastic folklore that we still do not
fully understand. Her work is recognized as important in the field.
Her book on display here is The Death of Gods In Ancient Egypt. The
site is still in development, so plenty more is yet to come.
Anthony West's Official Website
West and his geologist colleague, Robert Schoch, caused a storm
in the early 1990s by arguing that the erosion of the Sphinx implies
an age thousands of years greater than that conventionally accepted.
This unorthodox dating of the Sphinx has stood up extremely well in
the face of biting attacks (more from egyptologists than
geologists), and remains one of the strongest pillars of evidence
for the "lost civilisation".
Over the past decade and a half much of his research has focused
on ancient civilizations and their origins - beginning with a
geological analysis of the Great Sphinx and then expanding
outward from there. His web site serves as a place where
interested parties can post new developments and discuss the
ongoing controversies surrounding such research.
