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 conversation 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 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 the knowledge contained in these books-not just a few thousand, but millions of books? Von Däniken documents this fanatical destructive rage and suggests: If only one ten-thousandth of the former writing 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 ancient historians? Confessions of an Egyptologist is sure to captivate armchair adventurer, those fascinated with the mysteries of the pyramids and ancient structures, and of course, the millions of readers of von Daniken's many books.
