Inside the Great Pyramid at Giza (via the Smithsonian)

This month’s Smithsonian highlights the Great Pyramid at Giza. The Pyramid has long been a focus of tourists, mystics, statesmen, and scholars a like. It has been featured in Hollywood films and is a regular staple on the History Channel’s Programming.

The Smithsonian Blog offers some interesting perspective on the history of the pyramid, its construction, the history of the research, and its role in exploring the Old Kingdom’s spiritualism and history.

It’s a lengthy read, but well worth it. See the whole text via the Smithsonian Blog here.
