Sinopsis:

When we think of "The Sphinx," two notions come to mind: the massive carving at the edge of the Libyan desert by Cairo and the fearful creature of classical myth who posed high-stakes riddles to passers by. While this book focuses squarely on the former sphinx, the very existence of this formidable monument poses riddles all its own.

The first book devoted to the fabled Great Sphinx of Gizeh in over fifty years, this magnificently illustrated volume provides a long overdue and balanced assessment of recent claims about the age of the Sphinx. Defined by its straight-forward style, inviting to seasoned Egyptologist and interested tourist alike, Riddles of the Sphinx skillfully combines text and image, description and photographic detail, to offer a remarkably complete account of this mysterious, majestic figure.

About the Author:

Author of Egypt the Black Land and The Face of the Past, Paul Jordan is a television producer and writer with many years experience at the BBC. John Ross is a renowned photographer who specializes in Mediterranean archeological photography.
