With thanks to the Bradshaw Foundation for suggesting this new section on pyramids on their website. My article was by kind invitation of the Foundation's Chairman, Damon de Laszlo.
Our story began in November 1997, when I was introduced to Mr. Robert Hefner III, the President of the Bradshaw Foundation, by the late Dr. Malcolm McKenna of the American Museum of Natural History in New York. We made our wonderful trip throughout the Memphite and the Theban sites with the late Mr. John Robinson and his wife Margie.

Professor Nabil Swelim
In 1999 John and Margie Robinson returned to Egypt with Sandra, Damon and their eldest son Robert de Laszlo; we had an equally sustaining trip. At Saqqara we saw the newly excavated tomb of the 5th Dynasty Vizier Fefi. At Luxor the temples and tombs brought us closer to the complicated subject of the Egyptian pantheon.
This article is a brief expression of my understanding of the pyramids of Egypt. Forty years have passed since I became interested in Ancient Egypt. The information I am presenting comes from the articles mentioned in the bibliography.
I would like to express my appreciation for the expertise and patience of Peter Robinson, Editor, and Ben Dickins, Creative Director. It is due to them that they professionally produced the article in this manner. I would also like to thank Salwa my wife for her encouragement.
