You (the reader) are an Egyptian peasant who farms for your wealthy landlord. During the wet season you are ordered to help build the pharaoh's tomb. As a pyramid builder you will get an insider's look at what it took to build these massive monuments, such as excavating stone blocks, hauling stones to the site and setting them, masonry work, painting, and sculpting. After reading this book there will be no doubt in your mind that this is definitely a hazardous job you'd rather not have.
