Necropolis of Giza, definition and study. A-Z index of Cognitio. The Necropolis of Giza is a complex of ancient monuments of Egyptian civilization located in the Giza plain, on the outskirts of Cairo, Egypt.
It was one of the necropolis of Menfi, capital of the Ancient Egyptian Kingdom. Inside it is mainly the Pyramid of Cheops or Great Pyramid – the only one among the seven wonders of the ancient world, the Pyramid of Chefren, the Pyramid of Mycerinus and the Sphinx, surrounded by other small buildings, known as the Pyramids of the Queens, funeral temples, processional ramps, valley temples and cemeteries from various eras.
The perfect pyramidal shape was adopted by the Egyptian builders because in addition to the worship of the pharaohs was also that of the Sun: the corners of the Pyramid would represent the sun’s rays descending on the earth and the Pyramid itself the ladder to ascend to the sky.
The Egyptians were very precise in guiding each of the four faces in the direction of one of the cardinal points, just as the three great Pyramids of Giza testify. Among the latest discoveries is the village of the artisans who built the Pyramids.
The 1994 book The Mystery of Orion, written by Robert Bauval and Adrian Gilbert, international bestseller, tries to show that the three main Pyramids of the Giza plateau are carefully aligned with the stars that form the “belt” of the constellation of Orion. The realization of the three enormous sepulchral monuments would be part of a large and articulated astronomical project made by pharaohs over time. In the book in question the two authors, studying in particular the Pyramid of Cheops, also advance the hypothesis that the ancient Egyptians knew well the astronomical phenomenon called precession of the equinoxes.
There are many conspiracy and ufological theories that circulate on the construction of great works of the past, in particular on the pyramids of Giza.
One wonders how it is possible that populations lived long before the birth of Christ have succeeded in erecting engineering masterpieces that are difficult to realize even today.
According to the theory of the ancient aliens, the Egyptians used a technology brought to Earth by the extraterrestrials, those who today are called the ancient astronauts, to build the pyramids of Giza.
According to this hypothesis, the aforementioned pyramids were built about 12,500 years ago when, according to history, no civilization was present on our planet. Also according to the conspiracists, the technological progress that, over the years, has occurred in our civilization, would be the work of aliens.
All this would be proved by the orientation of the pyramids, which point perfectly towards the magnetic North Pole, which could not be known to the ancient Egyptians. Furthermore, the majestic buildings are oriented towards the position of the stars of the Orion Belt of 10.500 BC. As a result, following the theory of ancient aliens, the pyramids would be built to help extraterrestrials navigate in our skies.
