Product Description

Andrew Collins
Beneath the pyramids of Egypt lies a network of catacombs, hewn chambers, and cave tunnels that were lost for nearly 200 years. They have now been rediscovered and explored for the first time by science and history writer, Andrew Collins. Ever since the age of the pharaohs, stories have circulated concerning the existence beneath the sands of Egypt of a subterranean realm-seen as the tomb of Osiris and as the underworld through which the souls of the deceased must traverse in order to reach an afterlife among the stars. Through the decipherment of long-forgotten notes and plans dating from the early nineteenth century, coupled with astronomical alignments featuring the stars of the Cygnus constellation, Collins has found the entrance to Giza's hidden cave world-a revelation set to cause one of the greatest controversies since the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb.
