    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;A mathematics course from the Zep Tepi era, where we plan and analyse a large building site, showing how the design mirrors the stars.&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;A simple and elegant explanation of how Giza, with six main pyramids, was laid out, using &amp;radic;2, &amp;radic;3, &amp;radic;5, &amp;pi; and &amp;phi;. The design incorporates the necessary elements for squaring the circle, area-wise. The design matches the heavens around 55.5k BCE. This could force a rethink of at least the history of mathematics, if not the broader human timeline. This effectively solves the puzzle of how Giza was laid out.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
    <description descriptionType="Other">Version 1.1.0 : Re-arranged discussion of P1 base size, expanded discussion of 2143, expanded discussion about the big triangle and put it in its own section. Added "Map of Khufu?" section. Assorted other bug-fixes and embellishments.</description>
