The architecture of the pyramids built with false rooms attempted tohide the final resting place of the mummies. The rockcut tombs
The pyramids and other temples that were built were to honor the wealthiest of rulers. The most elaborate tombs and pyramids were built before the 20th Dynasty. One theory is that because of the wide spread plundering and desecration of the temples and pyramids many of the later tombs were hidden. The architecture of the pyramids built with false rooms attempted to hide the final resting place of the mummies. The rock-cut tombs in the Valley of the Kings near Thebes were one attempt to hide the graves of the royals. Finally, during the Roman Period of Egyptian history, elaborate tombs were not built as they had been in earlier periods. Here is a graphic time line with links to sites of Ancient Egyptian ruins.

Why Study Architecture?
Rob Shearer Because children are naturally interested in it. It is as natural as building with blocks and there are many possibilities for hands-on projects. Studying architecture can enhance the study of a historical period or foreign culture. The architecture of a period or a people can tell us a great deal about who they were. It tells us much about what they considered beautiful and what principles they valued. The Egyptian pyramid, the Greek temple, the Roman city, the Gothic cathedral, the modern sky-scraper - each of these tells us something significant about the people who created them.
What is architecture?

Solutions to the Great Pyramid's Mysteries
Why did the architect select the values he did for the Perimeter Length and Apex Height What is the meaning of the dimensions and proportions of the King's Chamber and its Granite Coffer and the Queen's Chamber and its Niche What did the Granite Coffer originally contain? For what purpose was the Niche constructed? Why are the pyramid's Internal Passages and Air Shafts elevated at such precise angles and directed precisely north and south? What was the purpose of the air shafts, and do their precise elevations and orientations associate them in some way with the internal passages? Could the pyramid builders have used the Granite Ball and Iron Plate as construction tools in some manner? The answers to these questions and many more are proudly presented in: The Key to the Great Pyramid
A Rational Solution to Mankind's Most Ancient Mystery
by Keith P. Johnson
The Key to the Great Pyramid presents a bold challenge to the academically accepted view of the Great Pyramid as merely a tomb for Cheops and nothing more. From the introduction to The Key to the Great Pyramid In the course of our inquiry, we shall develop a compelling new scientific theory regarding the architectural design for the Great Pyramid of Giza. We shall demonstrate how the architect of the Great Pyramid actually "encoded" the most fundamental elements of his knowledge of astronomy, geodesy, physics, horology, mathematics, geometry, and optics into the very architecture of his civilization's great stone monument.

Facts The biggest pyramid was 481 feet high and 756 feet wide. There were about 70 pyramids in Egypt. Egypt was divided into five different time periods. The pyramids were made of limestone and granite, and some were cut into limestone mountains. Predynastic Period In the Predynastic Period they liked making things like pottery. The Egyptians wrote hieroglyphics on the wall to tell people the first stage of evolution. The great Step Pyramid is the oldest architecture preserved. The Egyptians did a lot of sculpturing that was made of clay, bone, and ivory. Middle Kingdom The architecture of the Middle Kingdom isn't as rich in art as the Predynastic Period. In the South most of the tombs were painted. The Middle Kingdom does have more precious metals. New Kingdom The New Kingdom was the period that had great power. The kings hired good builders to build religious architecture. There were bodies of rulers that were buried in rock-cut tombs. Then Ramses the Second created the gigantic rock-cut temple for the dead rulers called a pyramid today. The sculpture in the New Kingdom was better than the Middle Kingdom. The painting was better than the sculpture in the New Kingdom. The decorative arts were equal to the sculpture and painting. The tomb of Tutank Haymen had rich materials such as alabaster, ebony, gold, ivory, and semiprecious stones. Late Period In the Late Period people believed in cat goddesses. The Late Period had strong kings but weak rulers. The People used names from kings to name their babies. The Assyrians created a new native dynasty and ruled for nearly 140 years. Then their rule was over, because the Persian Empire invaded them.

Home Beyond the Classroom Exploring the Ancient Pyramids Exploring the Ancient Pyramids
Adapted From: Architecture For Dummies From the ancient civilizations of the Near East to the native peoples of Central America, pyramid building has been a common architectural design for thousands of years. What is so appealing about this tapering shape? Ancient rulers liked these artificial mountains for their great height (allowing them to commune with the gods) and commanding visual presence over flat river valleys. On a practical level, a pyramid concentrates most of its building on the lower half, so fewer stones have to be hauled to the top. The lower stories act as scaffolding for constructing the upper ones. Tomb and temple, straight-sided and stepped, pyramids assume a variety of functions and forms.
Building an afterlife: Egyptian pyramids
The ancient Egyptians built, for their rulers, more than 80 pyramids along the banks of the Nile near modern-day Cairo from 2700 to 1640 B.C. The pyramids were designed according to three forms:

History of the Pyramids
Pyramids stand as a reminder of ancient Egyptian glorification of life after death. In fact, the pyramids were built as monuments to house the tombs of past kings, or "pharaohs". Egyptians believed that death was merely the beginning of a journey to the other world. Pictures on the walls of tombs tell us about the lives of the Pharaohs and their families. We know pyramids were built during a king’s lifetime because hieroglyphs on tomb walls have been found depicting the names of the gangs who built the pyramids for their kings. Furniture and riches were buried with the king so he would have the familiar comforts of his lifetime buried near him. Attendants and wives who died after the king were also buried close to him. These graves of relatives and courtiers can be found on the outskirts of kings’ tombs, lying beside the pyramids.
The First Pyramid
It was only 150 years later that King Khufu commissioned the building of the largest pyramid of all, the Great Pyramid. This pyramid is the lasting remaining wonder of the Seven Wonders of the World. Archaeologists continue to look for pieces of this puzzle tofurther our understanding of the Pyramid Age and the pharaohs that ruled Egypt.

    Ancient Egyptian Religious Architecture
    Written by: huggles One of the greatest cultural achievements of Ancient Egypt was undoubtedly in their architecture associated with religion. “Temples, tombs and pyramids – all have witnessed this earth for thousands of years. What better than to say that these architectural achievements show us that Egypt’s greatest virtue lay in its architecture” (Fumeaux:11, 1964) When one travels to Egypt, what does he/she see – pyramid after temple after tomb, each standing the test of time. One stands out – they are all associated with religious beliefs, they all have stood unmoving for thousands of years, and they all involve mechanical genius- the moving of colossal stones without the use of the wheel. The finest example such mechanics is shown in the construction of the revered pyramid. These three factors, all belonging to the religious architecture of ancient Egypt, do nothing else but prove its greatness. Egypt’s grand architectural design was a result of the religious values and beliefs that were in place at the time. Thousands of years ago, ‘Ancient Egypt accepted the challenge of reeds and swamps, hot sands and floods, and build the ‘first’ nation’ (Romer:75, 1982). There were few things to impress themselves upon the Egyptian mind; their psychological impact however was immense. There was the Nile itself, source of all life, there was the mysterious regularity of the Sun, Moon and stars; there was fertility and death. It was out of fear and mystery of these things that

    Barry Williams What is a pyramid? Is it a polyhedron whose base is a polygon and whose sides are triangles having a common vortex? Well, yes it is, but it is far more than that. The pyramid, which in its megalithic manifestation played a very important role in the histories of two early civilisations, has excited more speculation and fantasy than has any other solid geometrical shape. Cubes and dodecahedrons have never had the press of the pyramid. Before we investigate some of the more fantastic myths that have attached themselves to pyramids, we should review some of the facts which, to the inquiring mind, are far more fascinating than the fantasies.
    The Pyramids of Egypt
    The heading of this section is the title of the book widely regarded as the definitive work on the topic. Written by I.E.S. Edwards, keeper of Egyptian antiquities at the British Museum from 1955 72, this book presents the facts in a most readable form and is the reference for the archaeological information in this article. The history of Dynastic Egyptian civilisation covers more than 3000 years, of which the Pyramid Age accounts for fewer than 500, although this form of construction continued, in a much debased form, for a further 500. There are more than 90 known pyramids in Egypt, some of which are so ruined as to appear only as heaps of rubble.

    Egyptian Museum, Cairo
    By Claude Rilly
    NEW YORK, 20 December 1999
    - Even ancient Egypt was once young. Young, and therefore a bit hesitant, sometimes fantastic, tender or even mocking, but already showing the talent of a child prodigy. It is this unexpected Egypt, among others, that was on view at the Grand Palais in Paris last summer before moving on to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York until 9 January 2000 and the Royal Museum of Ontario in Toronto from 13 Februrary through 22 May 2000.
    The exhibition is the result of several decades of fruitful digs at Giza, Saqqara and Meidum, south of Cairo, where the majority of the funerary groupings of the Old Kingdom (2700-2200 BC) can be found. Alongside the work of the archaeologists, recent scholarship has also reexamined earlier notions and allows us to attribute certain works to periods even earlier than had been supposed. The Fourth Dynasty, for example, that of the Pharaohs Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure, has thus reacquired a number of statues and reliefs previously thought to be of a later period. Generally speaking, it is the art of the Old Kingdom, considered by the public at large to consist simply of monumental architecture, that has gained in artistic diversity with more intimate works often touching in their humanity.

Another friend - Jane Doherty - was guided to take her ancient crystal skull - Maya to the top of the pyramid time during a special solar alignement. the experient made her dizzy and disoriented. The inside of the pyramid is humid corridors and chambers and also can make one feel ill. The Temple of the Warriors The 'Temple of the Warriors' and its adjacent 'Temple of the Jaguar' are very impressive ruins of the complex. A massive temple structure, surrounded by hundreds of columns is carved with reliefs. My friends - who visit every year feel the energies of the soldiers going by. The columns continue on into the jungle, that part of the temple still has not been restored. The Observatory - Carocal This celestial observatory denotes seasons based on solar alignment at different times of the year. Lisa said it gave her a weird feeling as if spirits from the past were there.

    Your browser does not support javascript Before the Pyramids... April 28, 1999 Neolithic peoples in France constructed huge tombs that are today only visible from the air. This enigmatic object, dubbed "the point," has been found in several French Neolithic necropolises. They are possibly objects of power or symbols of prestige. (F. Lontcho) [LARGER IMAGE] The funerary monuments of Egypt are perhaps the best known examples of early colossal architecture. Few realize, however, that millennia before the first pyramids Neolithic peoples in France were constructing huge structures to house their dead and mark territorial boundaries. If this phenomenon is not well known, it is only because these buildings no longer exist. Only aerial photographs have detected their remains. Perhaps because of this, study of the Cerny people, the monument-builders of Neolithic France, is fairly recent. Until 35 years ago, no one had even imagined such a culture existed. The Cerny people were the brilliant intuition of Gerard Bailloud, a director of research at France's National Center for Scientific Research, who in 1964 first hypothesized their existence in the book The Neolithic in the Parisian Basin.
