"For three millennia, The Valley of the Nile, from the Delta to Nubia, was an immense construction site under the direction of the Pharaohs' master-builders. The Pyramids at Giza, the temples of Luxor, Karnak and Philae, the tombs of the Valley of the Kings -- all the colossal edifices are endowed with the spiritual quality that has survived through the ages. In this intriguing text the extraordinary legacy of the ancient Egyptian kings, illustrated with over 200 maps and photographs, the author draws on historical fact to reveal the spiritual aspects of the unique architecture and building technique." -- From the rear panel blurb.
