Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book reads like a detective story, with the reader enthusiastically trying to outguess the writers" Literary Review "Keeper of Genesis is an exciting book, highly topical and deservedly a best-seller" Spectator "The trick is to keep reading. Start the book in the early evening and continue uninterrupted until you complete it in the small hours. The effect is wonderful... Your entire world view has been shifted a hundred yards to the right. You fall asleep thinking that nothing will ever be the same again" Sunday Telegraph

In 1991 he set up Solos Press, a small publishers specialising in Christian Mysticism, Gnosticism and the Hermetic tradition of Egypt. He has been researching Ancient Egypt for over twenty years and regards the discoveries contained in The Orion Mystery as crucial to our understanding of the pyramid age. Robert Bauval was born in Egypt in 1948. A construction engineer, his interest in Egyptology is long standing, having lived in Egypt and elsewhere in the Middle East for much of his life. In the 1980s he developed a line of study linking the pyramids and the so-called Pyramid Texts with astronomy. He has published several papers on this subject and his findings have been presented at the British Museum. His is the co-author of three international bestsellers: The Orion Mystery and Keeper of Genesis and more recently The Secret Chamber.

Essentially the picture of the Pyramid complex being a great time machine, is very convincingly proven.

A great read, and I would recommend it to anyone about to travel to Egypt or who has an interest in ancient Egypt.

The great Sphinx sees his own image(the constellation Leo)as he gazes Due East into the eastern horizon.

I re-read this sometimes dense book and was able to take it in much more easily. There's simply too much here to absorb in one read through. The central thesis of the Great Pyramid complex having an astronomical and astrological function is gradually revealed through a wide ranging discussion of its historical discovery on the one hand, and on the other, more recent explorations by miniature motorised robot and other hi-tech methods. Essentially the picture of the Pyramid complex being a great time machine, is very convincingly proven. Every time I look up at Orion from the Australian bush as I have done recently I think of the Egyptians in antiquity and am strangely moved.

Years of research compressed into a very readable exploration of what may well prove to be the true history of ancient Egypt - and an insight into the origins of human 'civilisation'. Fascinating and thought-provoking.

Wth the use of computer graphics, Mr. Bauval's "Keeper Of Genesis" projects us back in time to the Giza Complex during the summer equinox circa 10,500 BC. The celestial Milky Way and the stars in Orion's Belt are perfectly matched on the ground by the pattern of the Nile River and the three great pyramids. The great Sphinx sees his own image(the constellation Leo)as he gazes Due East into the eastern horizon. The northern shafts of the King's and Queen's chambers of The Great Pyramid are aliened with the Circumpolar Stars in the northern sky and with Orion and Sirius-Sothis in the southern sky.
Keeper of Genesis introduces us to a culture of people where the entire society was founded and built on the "The Laws Of Cosmic Order" and "The Cycles of Nature". Keeper Of Genesis brings me closer to the final leg of a a journey that for me began in the mid-1970's in Washington DC where I saw for the first time "The King Tut Exhibit". I was so thrilled/motivated by by the exhibit that I decided to go on a quest to find out who were these wonderful people and when and where did they establish the culture(The First Time).
Since that time I have read many books, attended lecture and seminars, talked to many people who have travled to and spent much time in Egypt. In 1991, I travled from Giza to Abu Simbel and back and stood on the Giza Plateau and marveled at the sights(how I wish I had this text at that time). I hope that with his forthcoming book "Black Genesis", Mr. Bauval will send me on the final leg of my quest and help bring my journey to it's end.

Once again Robert Bauval and Graham Hancock do not disappoint. Their book, Keeper of Genesis, closely explores the whole of the Giza Plateau complex, and the reason why it was constructed, long before the Egyptian dynasties adopted it. They attempt to explain who it was that built it and when. One thing is absolutely certain; the Sphinx was carved long before the pyramids were built by a forgotten people, no matter what conventional Egyptology may say.
For anyone interested in the complex, I highly recommend you take the time to read this book.
