The murder -- First encounter -- Vanished labyrinths -- Adel's strange tale -- Paradigm shift.
A 16-year-old grave-diver discovers a mysterious labyrinth of the old kings under the Pyramid of Saqqara. In this fascinating book, Erich von Däniken shares the gripping story of his friend Adel H., an Egyptologist, who, as a 16-year-old boy, was trapped for days under the Step Pyramid of Saqqara. Based on his conversations with Adel H., he retells the boy's search for a way out of the underground world, how the boy roamed passageways and chambers and saw what he calls "impossible" things. It is secrets like the sights and events Adel H. experiences that von Däniken refers to throughout this book. He shows that the Great Pyramid of Giza was nothing but a huge library created for the people of the future but was destroyed. Who had an interest in eradicating hte knowledge contained in these books - not just a few thousand, but millions of books? Von Däniken documents this fantastical destructive rage and suggests: if only one ten-thousandth of the former writings had survived, human prehistory would have to be completely rewritten. And where are the lost labyrinths - the one in Crete and the gigantic labyrinth in Egypt - reported by all ancienct historians? Confessions Of An Egyptologist is sure to captivate armchair adventurers, those fascinated with the mysteries of the pyramids and ancient structures, and of course, the millions of readers of von Däniken's many books.
