The Great Pyramid at Gizeh, the oldest and largest of the pyramids. The information is contained in the measurements and proportions of the stone structure with its interior rooms and corridors, and in its orientation on the Earth and to the stars. The silent stones at Gizeh contain many mysteries, as do the stones of Stonehenge, Chartres Cathedral, and the Mayan temples of the Yucatan. Many of their secrets have been uncovered; more are waiting. "The Great Pyramid: A Miracle in Stone" is a classic which has influenced all subsequent work on the subject.
