Secret Chamber Revisited

The Quest for the Lost Knowledge of Ancient Egypt

A firsthand, behind-the-scene account of the controversies surrounding modern explorations at Giza

• Investigates the recent scandals at Giza and claims of secret excavations and tunneling inside the Great Pyramid

• Reveals the historical evidence in support of secret chambers in the Great Pyramid and beneath the Great Sphinx

• Exposes the secret agendas behind the latest explorations on the Giza plateau

Since 1993 Robert Bauval has been embroiled in the many controversies involving the search for the lost treasures of the pyramid builders and the quest for the legendary Hall of Records of Atlantis. The strange but true story that he unfolds implicates American business moguls, the prestigious National Geographic Society, several Ivy League universities, the Edgar Cayce Foundation, the Freemasons, Christian fundamentalists, Zionists, and the Egyptian government.

In this fully updated edition of Secret Chamber, including new color photographs, Robert Bauval pursues his in-depth investigation of clandestine events at Giza and the role played by the controversial ex-Minister of Antiquities Dr. Zahi Hawass. What lies behind the mysterious doors at the end of the star shafts in the Great Pyramid? What do the mysterious inscriptions found behind the Gantenbrink door mean? What is the real purpose of the Relief Chambers and the red ochre “graffiti” in them? Who is behind the secretly tunneling and excavating in these chambers, and why? Is there really a hidden Hall of Records from Atlantis beneath the Great Sphinx? Is the Great Pyramid just a tomb or does it serve a higher purpose involving a lost science of immortality? Why do the ancient texts ascribe the Pyramid’s design to the supreme god of wisdom Thoth, the writer of the fabled Books of Hermes? Will the Great Pyramid prove to be the “missing link” to our true origins or a “metaphysical machine” to access the world beyond?

Providing a firsthand account of the strange events that have taken place at the Giza plateau in the last three decades, Bauval reveals the hidden agendas behind these events and raises important questions about the meaning of Egypt’s ancient structures and the very origins of civilization.

Egyptian-born Robert Bauval began studying Egyptology in 1983. His first book, The Orion Mystery, was published in 1994, becoming a number-one bestseller translated into more than 25 languages. His research has been featured in documentaries throughout the world. He lives in Torremolinos, Spain.

“Once again Robert Bauval proves his credentials as a first-class researcher and dogged investigator. The revelations in this new, revised edition of Secret Chamber expose the quite astonishing goings-on at Giza since former Minister of Antiquities Zahi Hawass began his rise to power within the Egyptian Antiquities Service. This book is an incredible read, uncovering clandestine operations at the Sphinx and inside the Great Pyramid--a story of potential corruption and ongoing international scandal on a massive scale. You couldn’t make it up it is so bizarre, yet the evidence is laid out in every detail for all to see!”

– David Rohl, English Egyptologist and author of Pharaohs and Kings

Secret Chamber Revisited is a true inspiration offering real clues in the search for Giza’s lost Hall of Records.”

– Andrew Collins, author of Göbekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods

“Search for a hidden secret chamber in the Great Pyramid started in the 19th century, but nothing was found. However, hope was revived when on March 22, 1993, a German team sent a robot into a shaft of the Queen’s Chamber, which revealed a mysterious ‘door’ embossed with two copper handles. Robert Bauval, in his fascinating book, is reviving interest in the secret chamber, which could contain the Holy Grail of Egyptian civilization.”

– Ahmed Osman, scholar, historian, and author of The Lost City of Exodus

“Today’s ‘paradigm shift’ began more than twenty years ago. A small group of scholars and researchers pointed out compelling evidence of a lost civilization great in antiquity. Robert Bauval was one of those researchers, and in Secret Chamber Revisited he tells a fascinating behind-the-scenes story of politics and intrigue in the quest to discover Atlantis’s Great Hall of Records that legend claims to be located beneath the paws of the Sphinx. With nothing held back, Bauval captures history in the making and shines light on the struggle between traditional Egyptology and the ‘new Egyptologists.’ Robert Bauval deserves a literary standing ovation!”

– Edward F. Malkowski, author of Return of the Golden Age
