The Pyramids of Giza are among the wonders of the world, the wonder being why and how the ancient Egyptians managed to build them. The provenance of the massive human-head-on-a-lion's-body that we call the Sphinx is equally mysterious. Possibly sculpted from a hunk of spare limestone, it is believed to have been some sort of guardian of the Pharaohs' tombs. We've heard of beware of the dog ... A limited supply of tickets to actually enter the great pyramids are available in the morning at 9am and in the afternoon at 1pm.
