ORIGIN OF THE SPHINX: Celestial Guardian of Pre-Pharaonic Civilization Book
According to orthodox Egyptology, the Sphinx was built around 2500 BCE as a memorial to the pharaoh Khafre. Yet this "fact" has scant to no supportive evidence. When was the Sphinx really built and, most importantly, why? Two Egyptology outsiders, Schoch and Bauval, combine their decades of research to show how the Sphinx is thousands of years older than the conventional Egyptological timeline and was built by a long forgotten pre-Pharaonic civilization.
The authors examine how the monuments at Giza memorialize Zep Tepi, the Golden Age of legend shown here to be an actual historical time period from roughly 10,500 BCE through 9700 BCE. Moving us closer to an understanding of the true age and purpose of the Great Sphinx, they provide evidence of an early high civilization witnessed by the Great Sphinx before the end of the last ice age.
