The Sphinx: The Amazing Secret of Egypt's Great Enigma
Robert and Olivia Temple's new book, The Sphinx Mystery, is a work of profound significance for Egyptology. Not only do the Temples completely re-analyze what the Sphinx is and represents, they re-trace
its epic origins and re-examine its original purpose.
In a remarkable investigation, they uncover what was before our very eyes, a startling discovery that even the world's most learned Egyptologists have failed to see. Presenting eyewitness accounts of individuals who were able to see the secret chambers before they were sealed in 1926 has opened up a Pandora's Box of incredible new information with stunning revelations.
Experience their journey into the heart of the Sphinx mystery and learn what the authors have uncovered over decades of research. Prepare to think differently about this ancient monument, you will see the Sphinx as it really should be - as Anubis surrounded by the Jackal Lake.
"Their use of solid evidence, textual and photographic, makes the case unarguable." Michael Baigent, Holy Blood, Holy Grail.

When I saw this DVD offered on Amazon, I snapped it up straight away, hoping that it would be able to provide me with new insight into one of the most remarkable of the world's man made structures - the enigmatic Sphinx.
Therefore, it was with pent-up excitement that I opened the multi-region DVD and slipped it into my player. I am not really certain what I expected, but what I found was an interesting trio of interviews under the title of "Gardiner's World" by British author and historian Dr Philip Gardiner.
The first and most important interview on the subject of the Sphinx, is a face to face chat with husband and wife team of Robert and Olivia Temple, who have spent a number of years studying and excavating in and around the colossus. Their resulting book is entitled "The Sphinx Mystery: The Forgotten Origins of the Sanctuary of Anubis".
However, apart from a few tantalizing references to lost passages and magical rooms underneath the Sphinx, there is very little by way of earth-shattering revelations. The Temples also propose a theory that the statue was originally constructed as that of the jackal-headed god Anubis, before successive ancient rulers re-shaped its visage to suit their own images and styles. The Temples also suggest that the the enclosure in which the Sphinx sits is called the "Jackal Lake" by name, in ancient texts.
The 45 minute DVD interview is quite interesting, and is intended no doubt, to merely whet the appetite for the additional information that is contained in their book.
Gardiner also interviews two other authors on this DVD, who have released their respective new books.
Dr Adam Stout explains the reasons behind his penning of his book on the Druids of ancient Britain, which he entitles "Creating Pre-History", and artist Yuri Leitch tells of his obsession with the first and second centuries in and around Glastonbury, England, in his book "Gwyn".
As I mentioned, all are interesting, but it is only the main interview with the Temples that has anything to do with the Sphinx.
I guess I had better purchase their book.....
The authors talk about secret chambers but there are no photos of anything inside the Sphinx. Olivia Temple talked about how she distracted some of the guards while Robert Temple was exploring inside the Sphinx. He provides no photos of anything inside.
If I could rate this as "zero stars," I would.
