I must admit that I have a bit of an Indiana Jones complex, and watching the Raiders of the Lost Ark when I was a kid first ignited my interest in Egypt . In 2012, I began researching the Egyptian pyramids and some of the alternative theories about their true purpose as a serious side hobby. One of my life’s greatest aspirations was to one day see these structures in person, and in 2017 I finally got the chance when my friend Bethany agreed to join me on my first week-long trip to Egypt. I had a very specific, research oriented itinerary planned, but our guide Yousef had some unexpected surprised in store for us, including a journey inside the Red Pyramid of Dahshur. Upon entering the pyramid, we became overwhelmed by the intense smell of ammonia and were able to see the chemical staining on the walls of the inner chambers. The theories and story contained within this book are inspired by my experience inside the Red Pyramid and my time visiting Egypt, which led me to begin investigating the country’s ancient structures with a focus on chemistry.
Thank you so much for your interest in The Land of Chem, and I hope you enjoy reading the story as much as I have enjoyed writing it!
