    <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 1.2.0:  Fixed some typos. Added new π and e diagrams. Added formulas for relation between P1, P2 and P3 base sizes. Removed "A map of Khufu?" section, it is wrong and I have a better idea. Added alternate P4 P5 layout. Updated right side master plan. Integrated results from the Douglas Triangle. Added more π ratios in site plan. Added figures index. Added tables index.</description>
