It follows the reign of Pharaoh Cheops from his early days preparing to be Pharaoh, through the years of building this most famous monolith, to his eventual death and incarceration in his fantastic tomb. In separate strands, read about the lives of an Egyptian farmer who is drafted in to work on the building of the pyramid, a stonemason and the pyramid's architect. Find out how the pyramid was built and what everyday life was like for the builders and craftsmen working on the site. It offers an absorbing and information-packed look at the life of both the rich and the poor in ancient Egypt.
