Reader's note

How and why did the ancient kings of Egypt build their pyramids? These are two of the questions which this book sets out to answer, and a novel explanation is offered to account for the invention of the Pyramid. Excavations conducted in and around the Pyramids during the past century have revealed the astonishingly elaborate measures devised by the Egyptian kings to provide for their supposed wants in the Next Life and also to defeat, but always without success, the incursions of the tomb-robber. The story of their efforts to achieve this twofold aim, by the constant adaptation and development of the Pyramids, is here recounted, with the aid of numerous drawings and photographs to illustrate the principal changes.
