After a brief summer hiatus, The Revealer returns to BackStory this Thursday!  So, you know what that means...the return of The Revealer game.  Longtime fans of the show already know the drill:  in the week leading up to the debut of The Revealer segment, we will post new photographs daily that offer visual clues to the subject of the episode.

Here's the third clue:  Archaeoastronomy brings a fresh perspective to the most studied archaeological site on the planet.

      hi, look5 starts hlotes are the best ofcourse, but if we're talking about a limited budget, go for the 4 stars hlotes, dont go below that as here in egypt a 3 stars hotel is not that good, compared to 3 stars in the west.if u wanna be around a good view and surroundings, u should stayin al Haram which is a district in Giza and most of the hlotes there can see the pyramids.but my advice, dont just stay in giza, ur gonna miss alot of good siteseeing in cairo, sharm, hurghada, luxor , u need to find a good package (some are affordable) so u can visit many places, cause its not all about the pyramids.use this http://www.intoegypt.comdont use public buses, u dont wanna experience that:) its horrible, just use a taxi, or there is this new cab, which u can call it from anywhere, dont worry about it, cause if u like in australia, u'll find that transportation in egypt is very cheap.the lemo from the airport, will take around 100-130 egyptian pounds, its not that expensive, or u can simply take a taxi for 50-70 egyptian pounds.its very easy to travel to turkey from egypt, its only two hours and 45 minutes, there are charter planes for only 900 pounds for a ticket, or u can book it from EgyptAir, but its gonna be more expensive.once ur here in egypt, u'll find different offices for travel, like egyptAir, alitalia etc so u can ask there and book ur flight.Have a safe trip:)

      Maybe what's mentioned in the orpret is correct. one thing is not correct which is the demonstration or revolution was not started and have not continued mainly because of that you can see so many Egyptian figures and very wealthy people, millionaires even are protesting in Tahrir sqr. It's revolution against corruption, injustice, humiliation of the Egyptian in our own beloved country, dictatorship.If it was for money, people would go home when the government granted raise to the Gov. employees as well as the army people asked for democracy, and justice.Power of technology and spiritual prayers of all Egyptian (Muslims and Christians and others) will be enough to achieve what we are all hoping for and getting closer to everyday )

    As American living here 11 years It's much safer than the staets. They treat Americans better than they treat their own citizens and ppl all over are ready to help you out in a heart beat.There are things I love about Egypt and things I hate but I think it's just homesickness, its not Egypt but just the fond outdoor recreational memories I have had growing up in the Rocky Mountains.Come and have a great time and don't worry about Egyptians they are very friendly, but be sure to ask about prices for taxis from ppl in the street first before hailing one down and ask around for a good price, if you don't want to be overly stiffed on prices. Just have fun and relax its all in good nature.
