    Mohamad Rashad, 2009

    -          This website created by Mohamad Rashad and gives very in depth information about the different Pyramids built in Giza. A very important aspect of this website is Rashad’s information of the layout of Khufu’s Pyramid and includes a visual of the inside of the great pyramid. As well, the author explains the development of the Pyramids in Giza with the start of Djoser and the Step Pyramid and the father of Khufu and his pyramid in Meydum. Although, Rashad has a wonderful amount of material on the Egyptian Pyramids, he fails to cite any sources which could make much of his information invalid. Anyone who wants to learn more about the Ancient Egyptian Pyramids of Egypt could read this article. This website has very informative summaries about the Pyramids, but to readers should keep in mind it is not a credible source.

    -          This site is a blog posted by Mostafa Dadwood explaining the theory that Dr. Shaheen, head of the Cairo University Archaeology Department, proposed. This website states the theory that Egyptians did not build the Pyramids, but other beings, such as aliens did. Dadwood shows evidence given by hieroglyphics that aliens possibly could have been present during the time of Ancient Egypt and the building of the pyramids. This website’s information doesn’t have specific sources and is not a credible source, but it does pose some very good theories and facts.

                    Lee Krystek, 1998-2010

    -          In this website a lot of questions arise pertaining to the Great Pyramids of Giza. Written by Lee Krystek, this website has a lot of very educational information to help understand the Giza Pyramids. Krystek explains that it has been suggested that the Pyramid of Khufu was never built in order to be a tomb but instead an astronomical observatory. After the author brings up the speculation that The Great Pyramid was not a tomb, he proceeded to back up his statement explaining how Khufu’s mummy is yet to be found. This website has valuable information in order for readers to get a better understanding for the Great Pyramid.
